2023 Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

Our goal is to create a beloved community
and this will require a qualitative change in our souls
as well as a quantitative change in our lives.

~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

We are looking forward to the 2023 Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service on Monday, January 16th and hope you can join us! See below for information about the variety of opportunities for our families, including In Person and Take Home options, as well as details about the Drive-Thru Donation Station.

MLK Day of Service

This year’s event features both In Person and Take Home opportunities. The Day of Service will take place in the Perkiomen Valley High School Cafeteria from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm. The day is broken into two sessions, 8:30 am & 10:30 am, where elementary and middle school students can take part in service activities to benefit both local and international organizations.

If you are unable to join us for the In Person opportunities, we are offering a limited number of Take Home service projects for both elementary and middle school students. To participate in the Take Home activities, select the Take Home option in the sign up link below. 

Volunteer opportunities for our high school students will be shared separately in a future correspondence.
