MLK Day of Service

NEW DATE: February 21, 2022

We are excited to announce our annual Martin Luther King Day of Service.  In light of current COVID conditions, we have modified our activities and projects for families and are offering a variety of ways for people to serve and come together in a safe way.

We would love photos of the community partaking in the events below.  Use this link to submit photos.  Thank you, in advance, for sharing with us.  We look forward to honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy with you! 

Get involved:

  • Drive-through Donations –  station #1, #2, and #3 at Perkiomen Valley Middle School East,  10AM – 2PM (map of stations)
    • Used cell phones/eyeglasses: Bring old cell phones to be donated to the Collegeville Police Department. The police will donate the phones to Laurel House (a center serving victims of domestic violence).  Laurel House collects outdated cell phones and sends them to a recycling program, which then pays Laurel House a fee for each phone. Proceeds raised through this program supports Laurel House’s 24-hour domestic violence hotline. Old eyeglasses will be donated to the Lions Club.
    • Gently used shoes, clothing, linens, purses, formal attire and professional attire are being collected to benefit PV Post Prom, In Ian’s Boots and some local workforce programs.  
    • Formal and semi-formal (prom attire) will be accepted at station #1.

    • The following items will not be accepted: housewares, books, videos, toys, bikes, furniture, baby equipment, electronics
  • Card Collection! Welcome Lenape –  station #4 at Perkiomen Valley Middle School East, 10AM – 2PM (map of stations)
    • On Sunday, April 10, Perkiomen Valley will welcome members from the five Lenape Tribes to our school district as part of an event to dedicate the Lenape Arboretum and Muhlenberg Woods (PV Woods).  We will be collecting notes and cards created by our community to welcome the Lenape tribe members!
