A new event is inviting residents to give back to their community. In conjunction with National Volunteer Week, the M&M Chamber of Commerce’s Community Leadership Class is hosting Love Where You Live Week through April 21st. Blake Pogrant is part of the local Leadership Class. She says this week of volunteer opportunities is designed to show community members that just a little of their time can go a long way.
Throughout this week, residents are encouraged to take part in one of a number of volunteer opportunities including the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, food drives, and activities at area assisted living facilities. Several sponsors have stepped forward to offer prizes to those who take part.
Pogrant says she’s hopeful Love Where You Live Week will become an annual event. To learn more or sign up to volunteer, visit mandmchamber.com
