Last year 60,000 people of all backgrounds and ages embraced Dr. King’s legacy by turning community concerns into citizen action. The Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service is starting a new initiative for those in need this winter. There are a variety of ways to make a difference. One easy way that you can get involved is to host a collection drive or donate items to help those in need.
