MLK Day of Service

CAC AmeriCorps was host of two service sites for the 2012 Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. At Ijams Nature Center members cleared invasive species, repaired trails, and prepared heirloom seed packets for low-income individuals. We were joined by AmeriCorps members and VISTAs from Appalachia CARES, Appalachian Habitat for Humanity, Emerald Youth Foundation, and AIM (Achievement. Independence. Motivation.) Center.

Some highlights from Ijams:

At Morningside Community Center, AmeriCorps members were engaged in painting the inside of the building as one of the first steps in restoring what was once a community staple. CAC AmeriCorps's partner, S.E.E.E.D. (Socially Equal Energy Efficient Development), will be moving their offices and programming to this building in the near future.
