To honor Martin Luther King, Jr. on Jan 18, groups across the country spent their day off work volunteering in the MLK Day of Service. Zack and Tori organized a volunteer opportunity for AAS at ACCESS – a shelter for victims of domestic violence.
ACCESS receives many donations of clothes, toys, toiletries, and more at their Drop-off location: the First Baptist Church in Ames. The donation room was filled with winter coats and other winter items that needed to be sorted to make room for spring-appropriate items. Ten AAS members spent about 2 hours sorting the items and having too much fun trying to figure out what some of the items were.
If you’d like to donate to ACCESS, please consider non-perishable food, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, toilet paper – which they need more than anything else at this time.
Thanks to Zach and Tori for organizing the event!
