AARP Pennsylvania Celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Of Service

Volunteering Opportunities to Celebrate Civil Rights & Community Service

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AARP Pennsylvania today announced its scheduled events to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  AARP volunteers from across the state will take part in activities that echo the belief of its founder Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, "To serve, not to be served." 

"As we celebrate the historical legacy of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., AARP calls for a rededication to the cause of volunteerism as a way of making our communities stronger today and for future generations," says Bill Johnston-Walsh, AARP's Operations Manager in Pennsylvania.

Pittsburgh area AARP volunteers helped to coordinate and will attend the breakfast honoring diversity in the community. AARP Pennsylvania is a long-time sponsor of the event which is held at LaRoche, and is highlighted by the presentation of the Spirit of Unity Award to a local student who lives or attends school in the North Hills area of western Pennsylvania. 

This year's winner is Christine Mikhael, 18, of O'Hara. Mikhael was selected for her work in the community as an agent of change for racial justice and embodies the ideals of Martin Luther King Jr.  Besides AARP, the breakfast committee consists of members from the League of Women Voters, the North Hills Anti-Racism Coalition, North Hills Community Outreach, North Hills-McKnight American Association of University Women, Pittsburgh North People for Peace, Sisters of Divine Providence and the YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh Center for Race and Gender Equity.
