The operational heart of being a part of the Peace Corps family is service. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King jr.’s great service to civil rights and to the United States, Martin Luther King Day has become a day of community service. Take the time this holiday weekend to serve others and build community. Join RPCV/W in delivering groceries to vulnerable senior citizens around the Columbia Heights area with We Are Family
Grounded in grassroots senior leadership, We Are Family mobilizes a committed corps of volunteers to reach out to isolated inner-city seniors with free services, advocacy, and companionship, building a network of caring eyes and ears that enables at-risk seniors to age in place. More than simply a social service provider, We Are Family is a bold experiment in building caring, just and inclusive community.
Please join us in making this MLK Day not just a day off, but a day on!
