Students work on no-sew blankets for a homeless shelter

Statewide MLK Day of Service Project

January 16, 2023

A day off school was an opportunity for students to give back to their communities.

PA Cyber students, family members, and staff supported their communities through a united statewide effort today to honor Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy. They donated household goods and their time to various organizations, including Binky Patrol, Community Cares, Sweet Cases, Ronald McDonald House, and more.

“Martin Luther King Day Jr. Day is a time to serve our communities and help others,” said Laurie Richards, representative of PA Cyber’s Greensburg regional office. “He encouraged people to do what is right by helping people. He once said, ‘Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. … You only need a heart full of grace.’”

Charitable activities took place at each of the cyber charter school’s nine regional offices today.

“PA Cyber staff and students were excited for the opportunity to give back and make a small difference in the lives of others through our MLK Day of Service project,” said Howard Hiester, representative of the Harrisburg office.
