On Monday, January 16th, we celebrate and honor the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. by participating in the National Day of Service
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?"
A question King asked to an audience in Montgomery, Alabama in 1957.


To honor his life, legacy, and commitment to others the volunteers of the Norwin/Penn Trafford Democrats will be collecting items for the following areas of need:
