    Local organizations will honor Martin Luther King Jr. with a day of community service throughout Rutland on Jan 21.

    Volunteers will assist in nutritional education, stalking awareness, food collection, lessons on equality, financial literacy, as well as cleanup projects.

    Rutland’s VISTA AmeriCorps group, Rutland’s interfaith clergy association, and 32 AmeriCorps members serving with the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board will assist around the city.

    Community members are invited to join the volunteers, who will gather at 7:30 a.m. at Grace Church for a pancake breakfast. Donations of $5, or a food item for the Rutland Community Cupboard are suggested.

    Projects are expected to end at 4 p.m. and there will be a reflection of the day’s services at the Grace Church at 4:30 p.m.

    Service sites around the city are United Methodist Church, the Women’s Shelter, the Rutland Community Cupboard, the Vermont Achievement Center, Grace Church, the Boys and Girls Club, Mentor Connector, Dismas House and the Vermont Farmers Food Center.

    For those interested, contact Melissa Schlobohm at Melissa@vhcb.org.
