Members from Coast Guard Sector North Carolina participated in the 8th annual Work On Wilmington service day event April 20. Work On Wilmington brings thousands of volunteers together to roll up their sleeves and tackle community problems in just four hours. The results are incredible and they make a significant difference in the Wilmington community.
This year 26 projects were completed for non-profit organizations by more than 1,700 volunteers.
In all, 16 members from Coast Guard Sector North Carolina and their dependents joined nearly a hundred volunteers at the Yahweh Center Children’s Village, a center for abused, neglected and at-risk youth between the ages of five and 12 years old. Despite rainy weather, the volunteers worked diligently and accomplished a multitude of landscaping, building and other beautification projects around the village.
