The Montgomery County Volunteer Center is offering a variety of volunteer service opportunities to celebrate Community Service Day on October 26. Many organizations are seeking volunteers to help complete projects during the week of October 20 – 27 in recognition of Community Service Day, now in its 27th year.

The annual event and week of activities will be kicked off this year with the World of Montgomery Festival on Sunday, October 20 at Westfield Wheaton shopping mall.

Projects this year include packing after-school snacks at Dawson’s Market, removing invasive weeds from local parks, painting a homeless shelter, winterizing gardens in Damascus and Poolesville, recycling electronics at Verizon in Silver Spring and organizing a holiday drive for the City of Rockville. Manna Food Center will again hold food drives at 27 Giant grocery stores on Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
