Peirce College gives back to Philadelphia elementary schools on Martin Luther King Day of Service

We love giving back to the Philadelphia community. Many of our students, alumni, faculty, and staff have lived here their entire lives, and ensuring the area thrives is very near and dear to our hearts. That’s why we strive to give back all year round, but especially on the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service.

On Jan. 20, 19 members of the Peirce community, including our President and CEO Jim Mergiotti, went to Albert M. Greenfield School in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood and Henry H. Houston Elementary School in the Mount Airy section of the city. Volunteers painted, cleaned, organized, and helped upgrade the interior of the schools. Check out these shots we snapped of our volunteers getting involved:

We’re always looking for ways to help our community flourish, and are very proud that we could help out on Martin Luther King Day of Service. One of our core values is to encourage growth, and that happens inside and outside of the classroom. When it comes to volunteering, you get just as much as you give back.

If you’d like to join us in future volunteering efforts, send us an email and we’ll provide you with more information.
