Cary YMCA MLK JR National Day of Service

Join the Cary YMCA in participating in a Community wide Canned Food Drive to support the MLK National Day of Service. This is an excellent opportunity to get involved and they are in need of numerous volunteers.  

The event works like this:

  • Volunteers choose a street or neighborhood to collect.
  • Deliver Paper Bags with notes about pickup date to homes.
  • Collect the cans and deliver directly to Food Bank.
  • Report your results                                                  

The advantage of this activity is that each volunteer/group will choose where to collect their cans and be able to set up times that meet their schedule.

MLK Day is Monday, January 19 so we are starting signups now, with drives taking place in mid-January.

Volunteers can sign up here which contains more detailed information including handouts needed, instructions and list of food banks you can choose to donate to.

Any questions can be directed to Steve Siegel at 919-389-6256 or email him.
