VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
   
                                          
 
             AmeriCorps Volunteers

On the third Monday of January each year for the last 25 years, Americans have joined forces to volunteer in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year's 26th celebration of this National Day of Service will hopefully - despite the pandemic - be bigger and better than ever.

AmeriCorps, the only federal agency tasked with elevating community volunteerism, partners with communities year-round all across the country to address our most pressing issues. By building on local talent and ingenuity, AmeriCorps volunteers strengthen the community and bring about much-needed change.

You are encouraged to take part in the National Day of Service. You can participate in a service project, such as the Socks and Scivvies Drive (see below) or perform a service on your own.

For a list of great volunteer ideas that are safe during COVID, visit the AmeriCorps website.





As part of MLK National Day of Service, Volunteer NEMS is partnering with MUTEH (Mississippi United To End Homelessness) for a Socks and Scivvies Drive. We are asking folks to buy some socks and underwear that you can donate on Monday, January 18. Many people in our homeless community and other disadvantaged individuals need these essentials. We need all sizes - especially adult. Thank you!!

on donation day.

Considering Starting
Your Own Nonprofit?

The MS Alliance of Nonprofits and Philanthropy is offering a training that will help you better understand the world of nonprofits and help you focus and apply your passion to create the greatest impact.  Passion is a powerful force, but without a clear focus and a plan, you may not have the impact you sought.  You can take this training as a stand-alone course or as part of the new Alliance year-long learning track, Establishing Excellence: Creating a Great Nonprofit.
 
Friday, January 29 - 10:00-12:00
