HELP, Inc. MLK Day of Service Projects are a huge success. For instance in 2012, there were 30 volunteers from the organizations present. However, there were over 60 volunteers that passed through in shifts on this project.
Thanks to all the groups, churches and staff that participated. We also thank Mayor Molly Ward, Sheriff B J Roberts and Congressman Bobby Scott for their visitation to encourage all that were present that day.
