Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’ http://www.nationalservice.gov/special-initiatives/days-service/martin-luther-king-jr-day-service-0

The Flint Hills Volunteer Center is honoring the message of Dr. King by hosting a collection drive during the month of January. We are asking the community to help us with this service project by donating to the three projects we have selected.

  1. Life Choice Ministries http://www.lifechoiceks.org/
  1. Welcome to Fort Riley Cards – an average of 200 soldiers arrive at Fort Riley a month. http://www.riley.army.mil/News/tabid/86/Tag/1693/redcross.aspx. The cards will be donated to the Fort Riley Red Cross, who will then give to the soldiers. Please follow this criteria:
  1. Valentine’s Day Cards for Nursing Home Residents in Manhattan and Leonardville. Our Youth Volunteer Corps kids will deliver!

Drop by our office no later than 1:00 pm on January 29th or call us at 785.776.7787 to schedule a time for pickup. There are many opportunities to volunteer for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. HandsOn K-State will be at the Manhattan Town Center Mall on Monday, January 19th to register volunteers to do a service project beginning at 9:00 am.
