Camden Street School Hosts Day of Service to Honor Dr. King’s Mission and in Remembrance of a Classmate

NEWARK, NJ – January 25, 2019 – More than 300 people attended the 8th Annual MLK Day, “Remembering Dr. King by Honoring our Children and Saving Lives!” Family, friends, students, school administrators, teachers, staff and the community attended Camden Street School’s program on Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Day.

Camden Street School Principal Samuel Garrison said, “It is important for our school and community to have a day on and not just a day off. Every year, our program grows because it gives us an opportunity to put Dr. King’s words into action.”

Camden Street School’s I Have a Dream program included a day of service, anchored by a blood drive, student performances and students and the community making cards of condolences to victims of violence (after a classmate was killed earlier this year), school beautification and more.

Superintendent Roger León said, “Principal Garrison and the Camden Street School community, are living example of Dr. King’s mission and vision. I commend him, the students, parents and staff for their efforts and commitment on the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King holiday.
