Plattsburgh Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"
Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities through the MLK Day of Service.
The North Country Regional Volunteer Center located at the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. is remembering Martin Luther King Jr. Day Monday Jan. 21, by promoting volunteerism throughout Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence Counties.
The North Country Regional Volunteer Center (NCRVC) is offering 7 mini-grants worth up to $300. The mini-grants will be awarded to non-profit agencies, organizations, and groups with the purpose of doing projects that use volunteers to complete the task at hand. There must be a clear benefit to the community at large, a non-profit organization, or a person affected by an adverse situation.
Only one agency/group from each county will be awarded a mini-grant. If there is no application from one of the seven counties the award will be given to an agency in another county.
