On January 15, all current Lawrenceville School students and faculty will honor the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. through volunteer work on community service projects at organizations throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The School has held its Martin Luther King Day of Service for more than a decade.
While projects will range from stocking shelves at local food banks to performing classical music for nursing home residents, the majority of volunteer efforts will be made in local daycare centers, pre- and elementary schools. Rachel Cantlay, Lawrenceville's director of Community Service, estimates that nearly 3,000 local children will be served by Lawrenceville students.
The Lawrenceville School's Martin Luther King Day of Service is part of the School's commitment to teaching students that a key to becoming an educated citizen means knowing how to contribute to society in order to make the world a better place to live.
