Washington Service Corps – a program administered by the Washington Employment Security Department – has several hundred AmeriCorps members involved in community service projects throughout Washington state.
And although most of them had the day off on Monday, January 19th in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, many of them spent the day volunteering in some way.
WSC AmeriCorps members serve their communities on MLK Day
Members spent the day planting native trees and shrubs in woodland and wetland areas, removing trash from beaches, providing food for homeless youth, preparing community garden beds, and many other projects. All of which made an immediate, positive impact on the people and environs they serve.
