For the team at Jackson Cross Partners, this year’s Martin Luther King holiday was more special than those in years past. Instead of taking the day off, JCP decided to make a difference for the youth and families of the Greater Norristown community by participating in the Greater Norristown PAL’s Martin Luther King day of service.

A Hard Day’s Work is Good for the Soul
Our day of service began in the morning. The JCP team was divided into groups and assigned specific tasks for the day. We organized the PAL library by sorting thru approximately 5,000 to 6,000 books and categorizing them appropriately. We helped organize and sort thru the storage rooms containing old computers, sports equipment and other items that have been donated over the course of the year. And, we spackled, sanded and painted many of the classrooms and hallways. It was hard work, but the JCP team had a great time making a difference for the kids and families at the Greater Norristown PAL!
