Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County will hold a volunteer service day Jan. 20 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Clarksville ReStore at 404 Madison St. to lead residents through improvements to the store. 

The volunteer service will honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy. Clarksville residents will join hundreds of thousands of volunteers across the country on this national day of service. 

“We answer Dr. King’s call to serve and are making a difference in the lives of Montgomery County residents,” said Rob Selkow, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County. “Service brings people from different experiences together – volunteering unites all ages and faith backgrounds while making a difference in our community” 

The project involves improvements at the ReStore, including lighting and ceiling tile installation, painting, shelving and organizing the warehouse. The ReStore is the primary revenue source for the Habitat for Humanity home building program. Improvements will help support five Clarksville families currently working toward home ownership in 2020.

To sign up for the project, email ed@habitatmctn.org with the subject line #MLK. Volunteers should be 16 and older, wear work clothes and close-toed shoes and bring gloves. The Clarksville ReStore is 404 Madison St. Habitat will provide documentation for those performing community service. 

Habitat for Humanity MCTN serves low-income families by partnering with them to build decent, affordable housing. For more information, call 931-645-4222 or visit habitatmctn.org.
