Schools around the State celebrated Martin Luther King Day by setting aside academic hours to invest in volunteerism. The Sanford School in Hockessin bused their Middle and Upper School students around the area to more than a dozen non-profit and charitable organizations. Students helped with a winter clean-up at the Brandywine and Riverview Cemeteries in Wilmington , delivered about 50 brightly decorated care packages filled with toiletries and snacks to families with young children at the Ronald McDonald House, and brought home-made get well cards and balloons to patients at A. I DuPont Hospital for Children. They also lent a hand at the Clothing Bank of Delaware, Longwood Gardens, Faithful Friends, Urban Promise, the Latin American Community Center, Tri-State Bird Rescue, the Food Bank of Delaware, Hagley Museum and Exceptional Care for Children. “We begin planning and coordinating the schedule months in advance, and many of our students work on their volunteer projects in the weeks leading up to MLK Day,” said Middle School Head Eph Humphreys. “This is a big day for our students and teachers, who really seem to enjoy stepping out of the school boundaries to volunteer in our community.”
