Renew America with Open Arms

Whatever ones individual political persuasion, the January 20th inauguration of a president marks a new beginning. That new beginning actually starts a day earlier this year with President-elect Barack Obama calling for Americans to join in a National Day of Service on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – Monday, January 19.

This National Day of Service launches a new effort, Renew America Together, which isn’t about getting Americans to volunteer just one day out of the year. Rather, it is an effort to get Americans to commit to serving the community throughout the year.

At Open Arms, we’re using the National Day of Service as an opportunity to invite volunteers to learn more about us and to begin volunteering with us. We need volunteers to help prepare, package, and deliver meals to people in the Twin Cities who are living with chronic and progressive diseases on MLK Day – but we need those volunteers every other day of the week as well.
