Worldwide Community First Responder, Inc. will participate in the 2013 MLK Day of Service by assessing the health of the Nanuet community!

"Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love" - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The MLK Day of Service provides each of us with an opportunity to join neighbors and local leaders to tackle community challenges and strengthen the nation. In 2012, over 300 volunteers gave 2,000 hours of service in a single day in Westchester, Putnam and Rockland counties.

On Saturday January 19th, 2013, Worldwide Community First Responder (WCFR) - MLK Day of Service will assess the health of the Nanuet community. Volunteers will conduct short surveys of people along Main Street in Nanuet. The 10 minute survey includes questions on demographics and community health.

The purpose of this survey is to get your opinions about community health problems in the Nanuet community. WCFR Health Education will use the results of this survey and other information to identify the most pressing problems which can be addressed through community action.
