The following was submitted for publication by the Haverford School.

Haverford School Lower School students and their families celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of working together as a community to support each other by coming to school on Jan. 20 to participate in a morning of service projects to benefit local agencies and soldiers serving overseas.

The day began with a performance by the second-grade choral group, Coro Primo, in the Lower School Multipurpose Room, followed by a morning filled with hands-on service projects in the Dining Hall.

Service projects included decorating placemats for the mothers and children of St. Barnabas Mission and children at CHOP; coloring flags for U.S. troops serving in the military; stuffing huggable heart-shaped pillows for the patients in the Cardiac Care Unit of Bryn Mawr Hospital and CHOP; decorating “Special Place to Rest Your Head” pillowcases for homeless shelters in Upper Darby; and sorting items from a clothing drive for the Life Center of Eastern Delaware County and other local agencies. Additionally, the students collected gently used books to be distributed to Philadelphia inner city schools. Fifth-graders packaged dinners for PALM (Positive Aging in Lower Merion) and a number of area programs that serve the hungry. Proceeds from the Snack Shack benefitted Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Pediatric Cancer.
