Get Involved in Pennsport for the Annual MLK Day of Service

Get involved on Monday for the Annual MLK Day of Service (via)

Have you been looking for a place to volunteer your time? Well, Monday is the annual Martin Luther Kind Jr. Day of Service around the nation and there are plenty of events in the Pennsport area to help out and lend a hand.

We're going to stick to the places in an around Pennsport but our friends over at The Passyunk Post have a dandy interactive map for all of the registered events throughout South Philly. Give it a look and share it with your fellow South Philadelphians.
