MLK Jr. Day of Service is huge success!!!

Athens Community Council on Aging was a host site for the MLK Jr. Day of Service.  A huge thanks goes out to the staff from Jason’s Deli, UGA Service Ambassadors, Dr. David Burle and his team from the UGA Horticulture Department, L.E.A.D. Athens participants, Shannon Wilder from UGA, and local community volunteers. Through your efforts, ACCA’s existing community garden got some much needed projects completed and Phase 1 of ACCA’s demonstration garden is nearly completed. Thanks so much for making this day of service a success. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., “Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
