Mayor's Office Launches Service Initiative

Posted By on Wed, Aug 24, 2011 at 11:20 AM

On Saturday, August 27th at 9:30 a.m., Memphis Mayor A C Wharton's office will kick off the new One Memphis Cities of Service Initiative at KIPP Memphis Collegiate High School (230 Henry Avenue).

The initiative provides citizens with volunteer opportunities in the areas of youth wellness, civic clean-up efforts, and senior services. The program was created after the city joined Cities of Service, a coalition of city mayors across the country who provide service opportunities to their citizens.

Volunteer opportunities are listed on the new One Memphis service plan website, where citizens can enter their skillsets to find service needs tailored to their interests.

Other initiative sponsors include Literacy Mid-South, Meritan, Memphis Athletic Ministries, Memphis City Beautiful, and MIFA.
