Martin Luther King Day of Service
The birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. has become a national day of service and the website of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics provides interesting information.
“We expect another national record turnout — of 110,000 volunteers and 1,500 projects,” says Day of Service founder Todd Bernstein.
An estimated 85,000 volunteers participated in more than 1,300 services projects on Monday as part of the Greater Philadelphia Area Martin Luther King Day of Service.
It’s become a Martin Luther King Day tradition in Delaware County. This will be the eleventh year of the “Hoops from the Heart” basketball clinics at various locations around the county.
On Tuesday, at 7th and Arch Streets, the Citizens Bank Foundation presented a giant ceremonial check for $25,000 to the African American Museum in Philadelphia.
Organizers have announced the local service projects for the Martin Luther King Day of Service, later this month.
Monday might be a holiday and a day off for some but it is still a ‘day on’ for a lot of people. It is the 16th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service in Philadelphia and the region.
75,000 volunteers will be involved in 1200 community workshops around the region Monday, the 16th annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia will conduct an interfaith prayer service and send out volunteers to work on community projects for the Martin Luther King holiday this coming Monday.
