In Service Day

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?”

This question, posed by the late Martin Luther King, Jr., was answered in force this week as volunteer groups offered their hands and giving attitudes in service to Re-Source York.

As a day of service project, nearly 40 employees of Heritage Valley Federal Credit Union (HVFCU) arrived to share their afternoon on Monday, January 16. As store manager, Nikki Hunger-Eckenrode announced each work project, hands shot up . . . along with some laughter when the men agreed to be part of the “we pick things up and put them down” crew.


Other workers cheerfully cleaned lighting fixtures, sorted tile, swept floors, filled out price tags and more. (See more pix on the RSY flickr page)

Group coordinator Kristina Rose said she was thrilled the entire group could be accommodated in one location. We were certainly happy for their generous assistance, getting us that much closer to opening full force at the new location soon.

A few days earlier, thirty some middle managers from RSY partner, Bell Socialization Services showed up in lieu of their monthly training session. Pitching in to clean windows, build shelves, move lumber goods, and sort inventory, the program coordinators, asst. PCs, and directors provided real hands-on effort and got a glimpse of how our store supports the work they do every day.
