185 AmeriCorps member/volunteers were able to service the city of Pawtucket. We successfully painted the hallways of Goff Middle School! We were able to completely paint two floors worth of walls and doorways. I had an amazing day with my fellow AmeriCorps members. It was a great opportunity to give back to the children in the community and share this experience with our corps family.
Being a member of ICC, I was able to become a team leader for the day. This allowed me to delegate duties and observe the entire progress of our project. Everyone had such a great attitude and was eager to complete each task at hand. Despite the fact that supplies ran low, people were still seeking other objectives to tackle.
Lunch was served along with dessert! They also showed a slide show at lunch which had a message at the end from the school staff and principle thanking everyone for their service. It has been such a great feeling to be a part of this organization. Every day I continue to have new experiences and create memories. To sum this all up, MLK Day was a huge success and hope to have more service projects in the near future.
