- The Committee on Philanthropic Labor was appointed by Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of Friends (Hicksite) in 1892, merging the existing committees of Indian Concerns, Temperance and Intoxicating Beverages, and Colored People of the South. The Committee coordinated Philadelphia Hicksite Quaker activity in a number of social concerns, including race relations, Indian affairs, temperance and peace. In 1892, Subcommittees included Peace and Arbitration, Improper Publications, the Colored People, Indians, and Temperance and Tobacco. The name of the Committee was changed in 1936 to Social Service.
