OLATHE, Kan. - Johnson County government employees will host a community service and donation event Wednesday to observe the 12th anniversary of Sept. 11.
Workers will join forces with the 30 million Americans engaging in charitable activity in a nationwide effort to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11 through service.
Johnson County Government will host donation and volunteering opportunities, focused on sustainability, for its 3,800 employees, as well as residents.
Volunteers will be working on several service projects like working at the WIC Community Garden, placing markers on storm water drains, cleaning up trash and learning how to save a life in a CPR class.
The county urges residents to pitch in by:
· donating gently used clothing, shoes, bicycles, eyeglasses, garden tools and purses · disposing of unwanted electronics or unused prescription drugs · donating high nutritional food pantry items
Items can be dropped off at the Sunset Campus at 11811 S. Sunset Dr., Olathe, Kan.
