Essex CHIPS hosts Annual MLK Day of Service

Essex CHIPS invites all community members to join in for a day of service on Jan. 19. Come for a free community brunch from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the First Congregational Church in Essex Junction. Service projects will be held from 1-4 p.m. at various project sites.

This day provides an opportunity for the community to come together to strengthen bonds through small acts of volunteerism and service.

There is a service project for everyone, no matter age or ability.  Projects include writing Valentines for Veterans at Essex CHIPS, making dog and cat toys for low income pet owners with Lucy’s House, cleaning at Essex Rescue, and more. As Dr. King said, “everyone can be great because everyone can serve.”
