Governor Jack Markell will join first lady Carla Markell in calling on Delawareans to seek out special volunteer projects to mark the Governor's Week of Service, Jan. 11-21.
To commemorate the governor's second four-year term, the Markell's will take part in and promote a week of service, in addition to other inauguration events. The week will begin with a clean-up of the Laurel Boys and Girls Club in collaboration with the governor's office, the State Office of Volunteerism, United Way of Delaware, and the Salvation Army.
Other events include a statewide food drive at all Delaware State Service Centers, a week-long Martin Luther King Jr. Day Blood Drive with the Blood Bank of Delmarva and more. The Governor's Week of Service is in addition to the annual Delaware Week of Service, scheduled April 21-27. To register or for more information, visit volunteerdelaware.org.
