The Bryan County NAACP celebrated Black History through a Call to Service Day on Saturday, February 20th. There were three events held in Richmond Hill for branch members to select. Several members participated in multiple events.

Many of the members, including a few youth, started at 9 a.m. cleaning the African American Patterson Cemetery that was in need of attention and restoration.  

A few other members volunteered at the monthly Free Food Giveaway (held every third Saturday) at Restoration Worship Center. Branch members helped by packing grocery bags and delivering bags to vehicles.

The final event of the day concluded with a generous book donation to the Savannah Regional Youth Detention Center. The branch education committee presented over 200 books to the staff of the SYDC.
