On Monday, January 20, over 150 Maple Point Middle School students and a small group of Neshaminy High School students gathered in the cafeteria at Maple Point in Langhorne for the third annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service project to benefit Angels in Motion.
Students throughout the school have been collecting food donations for weeks to fill “blessing bags” which are distributed by Angels in Motion to homeless addicts living on the streets of Philadelphia as a way to help them survive and lead them to resources to help fight their addiction. The students also wrote notes of encouragement, made sandwiches for some of the bags, and cut up plastic bags to be woven into “plarn” used to create sleeping mats.
This is the fourth year of this project. An expansion is planned for next year to possibly double the number of donations and participants.
