PHA Celebrates MLK Day of Service

MLK - Blumberg

Philadelphia Housing Authority employees and residents spent MLK Day performing service projects at three locations. At Norman Blumberg Apartments in North Philadelphia, the Urban Technology Project, a partner organization with the AmeriCorps Pre-Apprenticeship Program, taught young residents basic computer skills and new technology. The agency also held service events at the John F. Street Center and West Park Apartments.
