MLK Day of Service

Posted: January 17, 2012

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, parents, faculty and staff from both Stevens and All Saints Schools joined over 200 students from kindergarten through 8th grade in lending joyful spirits and helpful hands at local shelters, soup kitchens, churches and other charitable organizations in Hoboken and Jersey City.

Students took part in projects that included:

“Feed Souls & Warm Hearts” - K-5th graders assembled bag lunches for the patrons of St. Matthews Lunchtime ministry. They also made “no sew” blankets and scarves for the In Jesus’ Name Ministries and the University Hospital in Hoboken.

“Cooking with Love” - K-5th graders prepared homemade lentil soup and sugar cookies for the Hoboken Shelter.

“TLC Body Care” - K-5th graders assembled goodie bags of toiletries for the Breakfast Plus Program at Grace Church Van Vorst in Jersey City.

“I Have a Dream” - K-5th graders learned a poem by Dr. King and shared it with people at the St. Matthew’s lunchtime ministry.

“Community Mural” - 5th-8th graders created murals relating to Dr. King’s message.
