Thank you to all who participated in 2016! 

2016 Martin Luther King, Jr.
Day of Service
Across Howard County

January 18, 2016

The Volunteer Center Serving Howard County, and on the behalf of the Howard County Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration committee, would like to thank everyone who served throughout Howard County in honor of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. More than 260 of you took time from your holiday to make cards for seniors; learn Hands-Only CPR; discover non-violent language techniques; increase your awareness of volunteer opportunities; and clip, sort and tally coupons (totaling $12,420.13 in savings) for our troops stationed overseas.

Volunteers, including County Executive Kittleman, engaged in close to 500 hours of service with 12 local agencies. They served at the North Laurel Community Center, the Howard County Food Bank, Success in Style, Johnston Square Park, and at grocery stores across the county, collected 3,174 pounds of food and non-food items - despite blowing winds and below freezing temperatures! They worked as individuals; brought their families and friends; or participated as a team. Together accomplished much!
