18th Annual United Way NSV Martin Luther King Jr. Youth Outreach Event

9 January 2018 Community


On Monday, January 15, 2018, over 100 student volunteers from John Handley High School Interact Club, the Winchester NAACP Youth Council program and Frederick and Clarke County high schools will gather together in partnership with the United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley for a day of service to celebrate the memory of Martin Luther King Jr. and to highlight the importance of service to others.

As a part of the now eighteen-year tradition, volunteers will package and distribute donated items and informational materials to families in the north end of Winchester. Donated items were sourced from Rubbermaid Products, area agencies, and local non-profits. Packaging will take place immediately following a short presentation at 9:00AM at the Our Health Building, 329 N. Cameron St. in Winchester. The presentation will feature speaker, Znyah Johnson, a 13-year-old Youth NAACP 7th grader from Daniel Morgan Middle School. Distribution will then take place until approximately 12PM at various locations/neighborhoods in the north end. The project honors the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by recognizing his belief that “everybody can be great…because everybody can serve.”
