The Appalachian Coal Country Team gathered with volunteers across Appalachia to participate in the National Day of Service honoring Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 21st. Thirty-six OSM/VISTAs and CCCWV/ACCT Interns participated in 25 service events throughout the region. Volunteers collected donations, held benefits and canvassed their communities. Some OSM/VISTAs cooked meals for those in need, others restored community buildings, or they led educational programs. We are proud to highlight a few of our National Day of Service Projects.
