The Lower Merion School District honored the life and spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the district’s annual Afternoon of Service on Jan. 17 at Lower Merion High School.

 

According to the district website students, parents, staff, and community members gathered at the school to not only honor Dr. King but also his “closely held belief of the importance of service to others” through different activities.

 

Students created arts and crafts, including valentines for veterans and sock puppets for kids, and assembled care packages for military families.

 

There were also multiple the service activities held: collections of clothing and other items for children in need, collections of clothing for homeless adults, food bank collections and collections for a pet shelter.
