Be a part of the largest Martin Luther King Day event in the nation.

The Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, the largest King Day event in the nation, and Global Citizen, promotes year-round volunteer service and civic engagement. Thanks to organizers like you, last winter tens of thousands of people throughout the tri-state region, including children, seniors, and families, received vital services and resources as part of the 24th annual Greater Philadelphia King Day of Service. We hope you will again join us as a partner on Monday, January 21, 2019, for the 24th annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service.

The overarching theme for the 24th annual King Day of Service will be a world without gun violence, with an emphasis on gun violence and its affects on young people. Highlighting some 5,000 volunteers who are at expected to serve in more than one hundred projects, workshops, and presentations at the Girard College signature project site, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and other elected officials will lead volunteers in a project focused on the impact of gun violence on communities, finding solutions, and envisioning peace by creating Dreamline Banners and Dream Booths to be installed in public places across Philadelphia.
