Perkiomen Valley High School (PVHS) students honored the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday by volunteering throughout the area.

At the high school, students peeled off labels of crayons to be recycled to benefit clean water efforts, and assisted with the post-prom committee. At the Perkiomen Valley Public Library, students scrubbed the library kitchen and inventoried items

At the Collegeville Fire Co., students helped to clean equipment and practice with fire gear. They did the same at Trappe Fire Co., and helped to collect and sorts coats for a coat drive.

Students inspected coats and packed backpacks for needy children at Feel the Warmth in Jeffersonville.

At Sebastian Riding Associates in Collegeville, students raked the arena, clean tacks, stalls, buckets and water tanks, and at Greenfield Senior Living, students played games and made origami doves with residents.

At the Perkiomen Valley Library, students scrubbed the library kitchen, inventory kitchen items and box books for shipping.

“It has been very inspiring to see how many of our students have embraced the spirit of this event since it began last year,” said Jessica Lester, Manager for School and Community Engagement, who worked alongside Patti Colucci, Graduation Project/Career Elective Coordinator, to organize this event.
