United Way day of service event postponed; volunteers may reschedule

Jackson County United Way has announced the day of service volunteer opportunity for Martin Luther King Jr. Day has been postponed because of the weather.

People who were interested in canvassing areas of the county this afternoon to increase awareness of On My Way Pre-K and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program may reschedule.

Bonita Dobbs, program manager for Jackson County United Way, said groups already assigned know they can reschedule if the weather is bad. Others who were not assigned but still are interested in volunteering may email Dobbs at [email protected]

The volunteer opportunity involves hanging door hangers with information on both programs.
