Dear Global Citizen,

Each January, tens of thousands of people across the tri-state region join together to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by turning community concerns into volunteer action in the largest King Day event in the nation.

Last January, more than 115,000 people throughout our region volunteered in some 1,600 King Day of Service projects, many which continue to engage people throughout the year. For example:

113,354 meals were prepared and served to the homeless

18,840 books were donated and sorted for distribution to centers and schools in some of our region's most underserved communities

15,471 care packages or hygiene kits were created and distributed to those in need

We hope to expand the impact of the King Day of Service and serve even more people in 2014. Please join us as a partner-- by organizing or volunteering in a project(s)-- on Monday, January 20 for the 19th Annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service.

We encourage project organizers to register their projects by Friday, November 15. You can register through this website  which also allows you to publicize your projects, recruit volunteers and request FREE King Day of Service T-shirts.

If you need help using our website, please call our hotline at 215-851-1811 or email us at mlkdayofservice.org. To help support your organizing efforts, we will host a series of planning workshops and webinars. We will provide best practices for project development and volunteer management.
