MLK Weekend of Service

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a champion of the poor and the marginalized. In his honor, the Heritage Community Outreach Ministry is coordinating a series of activities for a weekend of service Saturday January 14 - Monday, January 16.

Dr. King once said, “A second evil which plagues the modern world is that of poverty…Almost two-thirds of the world’s people go to bed hungry at night. They are undernourished, ill-housed, and shabbily clad. Many of them have no houses or beds to sleep in. Their only beds are the sidewalks of the cities and the dusty roads of the villages. Most of these poverty-stricken children of God have never seen a physician or a dentist.” There is nothing new about poverty. What is new, however, is that we have the resources to get rid of it.”

On Saturday, January 14 and Sunday January 15, Heritage will provide hot meals at the Hypothermia Shelter on Saturday and Sunday evenings.  Our offering will include hot food, desserts and beverages.

On the holiday, January 16, we will be serving the residents of the Embry Rucker Shelter a holiday dinner.
