MLK Day of Service

8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Registration for Projects Now Open

Join us as we celebrate Dr. King’s legacy by working together to serve our communities in and around Germantown/East Falls.

The Martin Luther King Day of Service is a wonderful opportunity to affirm your support for the values of justice and compassion that ran through the life and legacy of Dr. King.

Every year for over two decades, more than 500 volunteers have come to the Unitarian Society of Germantown, on Lincoln Drive at Wayne Avenue, to participate in MLK Day of Service Projects both on-site (at the church) and off-site (at locations near the church).
