FIGHT Hosts MLK Weekend of Service Project!

FIGHT would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers that helped to paint our Institute for Community Justice (ICJ) over MLK Day weekend. Over 100 volunteers from around Philadelphia came together to bring renewed life into ICJ’s Reentry Center. The project was a huge community collaboration and would not have happened without the generosity of outstanding volunteers from TD Bank, Repair the World, Youth Volunteer Corps, Warriors of the World, Americorps: Next Steps and many more individual volunteers that gave their time and energy to make ICJ feel like a home for all of our staff and program participants. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
