Across the region, volunteers are participating in different events as part of the "A Day Of Service" initiative to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  National, state and local organizations have rallied the support of volunteers to assist others in a wide-range of activities.

In Tarrytown, the Volunteer Center of the United Way organized volunteers who came to the Institutes of Applied Human Dynamics (IAHD) to work with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

"This event opens up opportunities to integrate people in the community with our clients and give them the experience of working with different groups of people, and give back to the community while honoring Dr. King" said IAHD innovation developer Candace Munroe who helped to organize the event.

Volunteers from several groups and corporations including Starbucks and Americorps joined individual volunteers to help clients make MLK collages and bake cookies.
