This fall we attended the opening day ceremony of the 365 Community Service Project. The ceremony was held in the Mayor’s Reception Room at City Hall. Our point of contact for this event was Mr. Todd Bernstein. Mr. Bernstein was instrumental in connecting VFMC to the MLK Day of Service Program. We hope to expand our community service endeavors and take part in an event to be staged at Girard College this coming MLK Day.
Note: after all of our community service events the students meet in discussion groups and reflect upon the days events.
