Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is always an inspiring day in Allison Hill. This year the community came together to clean streets, rehab buildings, paint rain collecting barrels, remove bulk trash, inspire youth (and be inspired by youth) through a poetry workshop and fellowship together over lunch.

At bcmPEACE, we joined with our partners at Brethren Housing Association, Harrisburg First Church of the BrethrenYWCA of Greater HarrisburgTri-County Community ActionHabitat for Humanity of the Greater Harrisburg Area and the Harrisburg Rain Barrel Coalition to welcome about 250 volunteers for our fourth and largest ever Allison Hill MLK Day of Service. Thanks to Harrisburg First Church of the Brethren for serving as the staging area for this event, and thanks everyone for making this a great day!
