Thanks to all who came out to volunteer on Monday, January 15th for A Day On, Not a Day Off to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
On Monday, Kaiser Permanente employees participated in several volunteer projects across the region and country for the 14th consecutive year. Projects ranged from stocking a food pantry in Baltimore to repairing a community firehouse in Riverdale to sorting donations in Fairfax. Across the country, thousands of our colleagues volunteered at more than 100 sites.
Nearly 200 employees here in the Mid-Atlantic States rolled up their sleeves and gave time to help their neighbors. Regional President Kim Horn pitched in to help, delivering information packets to residents in Riverdale, Prince George’s County.
“We are honored to partner with Habitat for Humanity and other community organizations to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr,,” said Horn. “As a mission-driven organization dedicated to improving the communities we serve, Kaiser Permanente is committed to supporting programs that increase access to care for all residents and that address food security, mental health, education, employment, housing and other factors that impact an individual’s ability to thrive. I’m so proud of these efforts, especially our employees’ volunteerism.”
WJLA was on site with Kaiser Permanente and Habitat for Humanity at the Riverdale Volunteer Fire Department, airing the story on Monday’s evening news.
Mid-Atlantic employees volunteer more than 5,000 hours each year – join a project through KP Cares this year to see that number climb even higher!
Thanks to all who give back to their communities in so many ways on this day and throughout the year. Take a look at some more photos below.
