M4A had shared a story in our previous newsletter about an urgent need of a female resident in Nauvoo who needed firewood donated to heat her home during the winter months. M4A is happy to report to our readers that a wonderful family donated and delivered a three month supply of firewood on Sunday, November 20th! WE WANT TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO THIS ANONYMOUS FAMILY WHO SO SELFLESSLY MET THIS IMMEDIATE NEED. 
                                              Thank you!

M4A AmeriCorps is a program that is all about "helping others and meeting critical needs in the community." M4A AmeriCorps currently has five AmeriCorps members within our service area who perform a multitude of different activities. This is M4A’s second year housing the AmeriCorps program.

The M4A AmeriCorps program is designed to promote health and wellness for seniors and people of all ages with a disability. The members travel to the senior centers and conduct evidenced- based exercise classes to improve the senior’s overall mobility.  They also conduct classes on chronic diseases and disaster preparedness.

Our AmeriCorps members also participate in national days of service to promote volunteerism. The service days include September 11th, Veterans Day, and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This year, the members collected community donations during 9/11 to provide four Fire Departments with lunch in appreciation of their service. Each Fire Department was also presented with a special plaque. On Veterans Day, the members partnered with Senior Connections and the City of Clanton to serve the local Veterans and their families with hot meals and a special Veterans Day program.

M4A AmeriCorps members receive a living allowance, child care reimbursement, and health insurance. Full term members serve a term of 11 months and must complete 1710 hours of service. After successfully completing their term of service, AmeriCorps State and National members may receive an Education Award of up to the amount of a Pell Grant. The Education Award can pay for additional college or graduate school courses, or it can pay off existing student loans.
M4A now has transparent Sport Tote bags available for distribution at no cost. These bags are a huge hit and NFL Compliant to get into sporting events. Contact M4A today if you or your group is interested in receiving a free tote bag.
M4A STAFF WISHES EACH OF YOU A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY. OUR OFFICES WILL BE CLOSED THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.
