Join and Groundswell for a Twitter Chat around MLK Day of Service

Use #MLKDayChat to join the chat on Twitter on January 14 at 12 p.m.

We’re partnering with the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance’s Groundswell to hold a Twitter chat on Wednesday, January 14 at noon, a few days before Martin Luther King Day.

Martin Luther King Day is January 19. For 20 years, the day has been dedicated to service in Philadelphia. In fact, The Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service is the largest King Day event in the nation.

During the chat, we’ll be discussing opportunities to get involved on this day of service while taking a look back at some of the interesting and innovative projects that organizations have done in the past. For nonprofits and businesses, this will be an opportunity to talk about what you’re doing on this day as well as share your ideas with others.

Groundswell and Philly Fun Guide have partnered to publish a list of Day of Service opportunities, which is available on their website. The list includes opportunities for volunteering at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Batram’s Garden, and more. You can find even more volunteering opportunities at

We’ll both be asking questions using the hashtag #MLKDayChat, so make sure you follow @Groundswell_PA and @Generocity on Twitter!

Let us know you’ll be joining us by tweeting:
