Longwood MLK Day Challenge
The Rescue was a grateful recipient of volunteers from Longwood University’s Martin Luther King Jnr Day service challenge. Every year LU run a MLK Celebration week, which this year was January 18-22. During the week the university hosts their the MLK Service Challenge, an opportunity for students to engage in the local community through service. On January 18th, MLK Day, they sent students out across the community to do miniature projects that benefited local agencies. White Bird entertained 10 of these community-spirited volunteers, and on a cold, sunny day they ensured that the two new stalls built on the Eagle Scout project were fitted with mats. After hot chocolate, and a break for lunch, they then helped muck-out stalls. Thank you volunteers, and thank you Longwood University for yet another community-friendly endeavor.
