2019 Day of Service Fulfilled Its Mission
About 1,345 enthusiastic servants of all ages participated in Glen Mar's annual Day of Service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Jan. 21.
Volunteers packaged 105,360 meals for the hungry, decorated 40 dozen cookies for inner-city school teachers, donated 38 units of blood to the American Red Cross, sewed 160 pillow cases for those undergoing treatment, made 44 no-sew blankets for the youth at Board of Child Care, constructed 11 bunk beds (22 beds) so no kid sleeps on the floor, and made about 2,700 spiritual bracelets for those in need of hearing about God’s love.
The event also fulfilled the community's desire to honor Dr. King's legacy and share a giving experience with children. Patrice, who came with her husband and three children, said they "left feeling fulfilled and grateful."
Thank you to our many volunteers and partners who made this event possible.
