Germantown High MLK Day projects

The 125 volunteers that converged on Germantown High School this morning truly had “One Vision. One Voice” as they did community service work to remember the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I think it’s important to develop a sense of community so other people can stand on our shoulders,” Nasir Smith, 10, said.

Volunteers from Villanova University, Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church, Philly Truck Squad, the 14th Police District and Germantown High School wrote letters to the men and women serving in the military, made emergency health kits to send to Haiti and painted school lockers.

Over 260 health kits were assembled for the Haiti effort. Each health kit contains a hand towel, a washcloth, a comb, fingernail clippers, a bar of soap, a toothbrush, six adhesive plastic strip sterile bandages and a dollar to purchase toothpaste.
