(Chester, PA-January 15, 2016) – Activities linked to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will highlight the holiday Monday for children ages 6-12 at the Chester Housing Authority’s Booker T. Washington Community Center, 611 Central Avenue.
As their Day of Service, students from Widener University have planned crafts and other activities for the kids and will even be serving them lunch.
“We thought it would be both fun and educational for the children to participate in a day of activities connected to Dr. King,” said CHA board chair Sheila Church. “So we got in touch with Widener and students there felt this would be a fulfilling activity for them.”
Following lunch, the children will rotate to different stations every 20 minutes. At one station they will express through art how they would change the world. At another they will create a peace patchwork. And in the computer lab they will do a Martin Luther King word search.
“We appreciate Widener’s support and the relationship the housing authority has with Widener students,” said CHA board member Catherine Feminella. “The Widener students and these children form a bond that exemplifies Dr. King’s message.”
The event begins at 11:00 and will last until 3:00.
