The above is a flier for the upcoming MLK Food Drive. For the past 10+ years, local community volunteers, elected officials and others come together to collect canned food for several local agencies that serve the poor, hungry and homeless. This year’s event will culminate in the distribution of canned foods to area shelters that includes the Opportunity Center for the Homeless, Reynolds House, Center Against Family Violence just to name a few.
Our simple request is that as you shop at the local stores over the next several weeks, that you consider picking up a few extra items and place them in the big blue containers marked MLK Food Drive—Keeping the Dream Alive. Your food items will be counted, weighed and distributed to the area shelters and food pantries around the community to assure the hungry and homeless are fed.
What better way to start then New Year than sharing with others. The rewards are awesome.
PS—if your favorite grocery store is not listed, feel free to drop off your canned food items to our offices at 6501 Boeing Drive, Suite E1 and we will include them in the MLK Food Bin!
PS—Pass this on to others.
