A Powerful Day Of Service

A Powerful Day of Service

On Monday, January 15, nearly 200 Kaiser Permanente employees in the Mid-Atlantic region volunteered for “A Day On, Not a Day Off” projects to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This was the 14th consecutive year in which employees across the region volunteered for projects ranging from stocking a food pantry in Baltimore to repairing a community firehouse in Riverdale to sorting donations in Fairfax. And all across the country, thousands of other Kaiser Permanente employees volunteered at more than 100 sites.

In the Mid-Atlantic States, Regional President Kim Horn pitched in to help, delivering information packets to residents in 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.”
