AmeriCorp Week celebration at Selma Held Community Garden
AmeriCorps members joined together Friday to work on the Selma Held Community Garden Service Project in Helena.
Montana Energy Corps organized the project as part of AmeriCorps Week. Organizers say the week of recognition aims to highlight work done in Montana communities since their founding in 1994. With more than 1,200 members in the state, participants say it’s nice to bring different groups together.
“It's been a really cool chance for the various AmeriCorps groups to kind of mix and work with each other, which is kind of one of the points of AmeriCorps Week and also the community as well and that's something we always strive for,” says Devin Cowan of MT Energy Corps.
As a continuation of AmeriCorps Week, members are participating in the Race for the Cure on Saturday at the state Capitol.
