Say Yes to Service with Liberty on MLK Day
Say Yes to Service with Liberty on MLK Day

Each and every day staff and volunteers within the Liberty Family of Services are creating communities and changing lives by offering help and support to people of all ages throughout Eastern and Central Pennsylvania. This past year we touched the lives of more than 61,000 people in need. This devotion to service is ingrained in our culture here at Liberty. In fact, we call it “Say Yes to Service!”

 

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. embodied the spirit of dreaming for change and personified community service. Monday, January 19 marks the 20th anniversary of the Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, known as the largest King Day event in the nation. It’s the perfect time to mobilize a group of motivated volunteers to “Say Yes to Service,” and make a meaningful contribution to the Liberty family and our local community.

Although our offices will be closed for the national holiday, Liberty is hosting a volunteer event to commemorate this national Day of Service.

Liberty is seeking 15 to 20 volunteers (at least 16 years of age) to paint the interior office space of our Lutheran Children and Family Service (LCFS) offices in Roslyn, Montgomery County, between 9am and 4pm on Monday, January 19. LCFS provides valuable programs and services to children, refugees, at-risk youth and troubled families.

Advanced registration is necessary. Please email Julia Menzo, Liberty’s Volunteer Engagement Coordinator, to sign-up today. [email protected] Painting experience is great, but not necessary.

“LCFS can’t do the work it does without the support of the community,” said Julia. “Through this volunteer opportunity at LCFS, you can join thousands across the country on this national Day of Service and truly make a difference in people’s lives.”

Volunteers are also needed at an event to support LCFS refugee resettlement efforts on January 19. Our community and congregational partners have gathered many generous donations of household items and furniture to help refugees as they start a new life here in Pennsylvania. Thanks to this generosity, the storage spaces are very full. A group is gathering at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 508 Harry Street, Conshohocken, on January 19 to re-organize the crowded storage space from 9am to noon. Pizza lunch is provided. If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please contact Jane Jorgenson, LCFS Resource Developer, at 215-470-8005 by January 15.

Please consider saying yes to service with Liberty on MLK Day and throughout the rest of 2015.

Thank you, staff and volunteers, for your hard work, time and talents. We couldn’t do it without you.
