Local volunteers celebrate MLK Day of Service

From The Delaware Valley-

The Delaware Valley Interfaith Council hosted its fourth annual Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day on Sunday at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury.

The event attracted people from nine congregations around the region, and volunteers got into the mood of MLK Day by participating in activities that benefit others.

Marjorie Kaplan, member of Kehilat Hanahar, a synagogue in New Hope, explained that the Interfaith Council has brought everyone together for the past four years, and each year, the event grows.

“We seem to get another congregation interested in participating (each year), and we’re all starting to get to know each other. We’re becoming like a very large family,” she said.
That family is a gathering of churches and a synagogue from both sides of the Delaware River, and throughout the day, volunteers visited different stations completing various tasks to help others.
