About

Food Donations Only are Needed

On the third Monday in January, people across the country will pay homage to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by serving those in their communities who are less fortunate. In 1994, congress ratified the King Holiday and Service Act bringing King’s vision of public service and non-violent social change once again to the forefront of the American conscience. Since then, the Corporation for National and Community Service in partnership with the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Non-violent Social Change, and communities across the country have worked to make the King Holiday a day on, instead of a day off. The idea is to encourage people to volunteer on the third Monday in January to help make their communities a better place to live by serving others much as Dr. King did throughout his life. Thousands of projects across America will be held to help make Dr. King’s dream a reality. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Holiday, the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), in collaboration with the Senior Companion Program (SCP), will participate in a MLK Canned Good Food Drive.

The food will be donated the St. Peter Claver Catholic Church Food Pantry Program.
