By Mellany Armstrong 12:30pm, January 11, 2013 - Updated 3:07pm, January 11, 2013Governor Markell's Week of Service has begun with a variety of projects you can choose from.
One of the easiest ways to participate is to be a blood donor. Christine Serio of the Bloodbank of Delmarva says donating is a way to serve others in need.
"Folks can come out to any of our centers, any of our mobile locations, and donate blood, and they will fill out a hero card when they come in, and then they will receive a special t-shirt and just be counted as part of the week of service," she said.
The MLK Hero Blood Drive wraps up on January 21st.
DNREC is also looking for volunteers to help with winter projects at state wildlife areas and state parks.
