We’re so excited to be hosting our annual MLK Day event in person again! Like always, it will be a big, wonderful block party with lots of ways for people of all ages to help.

To be COVID-safe, this year we’re only accepting NEW clothesAnd get this: We’ll be putting together a full 2,023 (!) winter clothing kits for all kinds of nice folks who are struggling.  Please note: Yes, we will happily accept any new clothes or shoes. However, please NO USED clothes. Thanks!

We’ll also have:

  • Lots of fun arts & craft projects to benefit local nonprofits
  • Our growing Civil Rights Exhibit
  • Our popular Big Sunday’s Something in Common Project
  • Awesome entertainment from the Blue Breeze Band
  • And of course, we’ll also all be enjoying a big and delicious community breakfast together.

In these divisive times, we’re especially looking forward to MLK Day this year. We can’t think of a better occasion for people of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs to be working together for a common cause. We like to think it’s what Dr. King worked so hard for.
