A week with hands on Thomas County: Work first, play later

THOMASVILLE — As the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend approaches, most people are planning for a day off on Monday. Hands On Thomas County (HOTC) has another idea — make it “a day on!”

 Hands On Thomas County will kick off the week by working hard in honor of King. Monday, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., volunteers in Thomas County will join hundreds of thousands of Americans who are participating in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service projects across the country. This national day of service honors King’s legacy and commitment to transforming our nation through service to others. Projects address the issues of hunger, community development and education. Local projects include a Manna Drop food distribution at Clifford Temple CME Church, a community beautification project led by staff and youth from the Marguerite Neel Williams Boys & Girls Club, and helping sort and distribute food at America’s Second Harvest.  To top off the day of service, that afternoon, HOTC volunteers will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of black history with a tour of the Jack Hadley Black History Museum.

See Thursday's edition for more details.
