Coordinator Briefing

 

King Day 2012                                      King Day 2012

 

On January 21, 2013 tens of thousands of volunteers throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware will participate in the 18th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, the largest King Day event in the nation.

 

Last winter, over 300,000 individuals were directly served by the various projects that took place. Some 116,000 meals were prepared and served to those in need; over 42,000 books were donated and prepared for distribution to underserved communities.

 

Each year we strive to expand the Day's impact and serve even more individuals. We hope you will join us a partner by organizing a project or event that addresses a need in your community.   

 

To help support organizing efforts, we are hosting planning workshops where staff will provide information, technical support and facilitate connections to other participants.
