SFAHS MLK Day of Service Project
Spring-Ford Area High School's Black Student Union (BSU) is collecting canned food and toiletries as their MLK Day of Service Project!

During the last quarter-century, the MLK Day of Service has grown, and its impact increased as more Americans embraced the idea that citizenship involves taking an active role in improving communities.

Although Martin Luther King Day is Monday, January 15th, the student group will continue collecting up until January 31, 2024.

  • SFAHS students: check the flyer in school to drop your donations off.
  • 7-8 grade students: drop your donations off in Homeroom
