More than 60 volunteers from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia worked to paint and clean up several sites across Philadelphia, mostly in Gray’s Ferry and West Philadelphia, on Monday, Jan. 19, 2015, in honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
“This was a tremendous opportunity for CHOP employees to work side by side, meet new people and spend a day giving back to the community in the spirit of what MLK Day is all about — community togetherness," said Sarah Gibbons, community relations manager.
Staff volunteered in the Vare Recreation Center, Furness High School, Jane Addams Place, the National Marian Anderson Museum and Mt. Olivet Recreation Center. We extend a tremendous “thank you” to these volunteers for spending their holiday serving others.
