Sailing group volunteers on MLK Day

Members of the New England Science and Sailing AmeriCorps led community volunteers in Connecticut in service to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King on Jan. 19.

"Today we answered Dr. King's call to serve and are making a difference in the lives of New London residents," Kelley Stephens, the AmeriCorps manager at New England Science and Sailing, said in a statement. "A resourceful way to meet local needs, volunteer service is a powerful tool that builds strong communities. We are putting the core American principles of citizenship and service into action."

AmeriCorps members from NESS and FoodCorps and community volunteers came together to paint, clean and refurbish the former site of the New London (Conn.) Homeless Hospitality Center at St. James Episcopal Church for future use as a community center.

In the afternoon, they joined the staff at the New London Community Meal Center to help clean the facility and help prepare the evening meal.

"MLK Day reminds us what it means to serve our community and helps us to take time out of our busy lives to reflect upon the impact one person can make," AmeriCorps member Helen Nelson said.
