On January 18, 2016, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, HELPIS will be working with Act-On Software on a Day of Service. We will be filling "Kits for Kids" for children in need. Items will include tote bags with snacks, drinks, activities, such as coloring books and crayons, reading books, other activities, and basic toiletries. These bags will be donated to the children served by Mass DCF, Burlington Youth and Family Services, and the Burlington Food Pantry. Want to get involved?

This later led Joyce to found HELPIS: a social network that promotes and encourages kind and charitable deed
