19 Jan Sixers Honor Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr., Day is one of the largest days of volunteerism in the United States. Serving the community is at the heart and core values of the Philadelphia 76ers organization. Across three Days of Service alone, Sixers staff members have totaled over 1,500 hours of volunteering in this fiscal year.
With a heavy emphasis on service in the community, the Sixers operate the Project 76 employee volunteer program over the course of the year. This program is a commitment from each Sixers staff member to volunteer 76 hours of his or her time to bettering the community through service.
From removing nearly 13,000 pounds of trash and debris from Cobbs Creek to packing more than 50,000 meals for at-risk youth in Philadelphia and Camden, the Sixers truly believe in collaborating together for a better and brighter future.
The Sixers encourage spending Martin Luther King Jr., Day by upholding his commitment to volunteering. For more information on community service opportunities in the Greater Philadelphia Area, visit http://mlkdayofservice.org/volunteer/.
