Volunteers Giving Back On MLK Day

We couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon or better weather for that matter. Thanks to the approximately 50 volunteers who helped us to prepare 720 Power Packs on Fountain Square on MLK Day. It was all part of the Seventh Annual Power Pack-a-Thon. The nutritious packs of food are making a different in the lives of children at risk of hunger in our Tri-State area.

Food

Before there can be a conversation on possibilities and potential, we must provide food. It is the single most important foundational element linking all people.

Connection

Addressing hunger allows us to have conversations on other issues affecting individuals, families and communities to help create stability and self-reliance for those in need.

Hope

By connecting those in need to services that create stability, we work to determine the root causes of hunger and poverty and build hope in our community.
