During the month of January, in honor of the Martin Luther King holiday, AmeriCorps on the Frontline members hosted and participated in service projects all across the state. On January 21st, Kanawha county members participated in a community service project serving over 150 families in Charleston, WV. Members partnered with 30 community volunteers to provide beautification services to a local west side afterschool location. Volunteers painted fences, planted flowers, and built a bench in the park to give parents a place to sit and watch their children play. Food and clothing drives were also conducted during this service project. Through this service AmeriCorps members contributed to making the community a better place for its residents.
