United Way AmeriCorps VISTAs and members volunteer at area nonprofits in honor of MLK Day of Service

United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley’s AmeriCorps VISTAs and members came together to serve at two of our nonprofit agencies for Martin Luther King, Jr., National Day of Service. This year, they volunteered at Family Promise in Nesquehoning in Carbon County to clean, and organize goods provided to clients and at the Bethlehem Emergency Shelter to prepare, cook, serve and clean up dinner for guests.

AmeriCorps is a national service program administered by PennSERVE (Pennsylvania’s State Service Commission), enrolling individuals in national community service positions. AmeriCorps members represent the best of America, tirelessly serving people and communities across the country. 

UWGLV is proud to have AmeriCorps members serve in various positions to gain professional experience. Members work closely with United Way staff and assignments are based in the UWGLV office, school districts and nonprofit organizations throughout the Greater Lehigh Valley.
