Martin Luther King Day of Service
Every year, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, thousands of volunteers from across the country unite in service work. In the midst of the pandemic, we are not able to be in person for a day of service, but this will not keep us from serving our community. MLK Day is January 18th.
This year we will be collecting items of great need for Mercy House. Mercy House provides housing & comprehensive supportive services for a variety of homeless populations which includes families, adult men and women, mothers, and their children.
To make this easy, we have created a wish list on Amazon. Purchase from the list, pay for it and it will be shipped to Sarah Hunter’s home.
Here are items on the list –
- Sweats + Sweatshirts
- Sports Bras
- Underwear (Men's and Women's)
*All clothing sizes should be Men's/Women's S-4XL
- Plastic Rain Ponchos
- Books (gently used)
- Games (gently used with all parts)
- Puzzles (gently used with all parts)
- Art Supplies

Another choice is to write letters to those who are in senior living centers. The residents are quarantined with little contact with the outside. You can write a letter of hope and love that can make a difference in someone’s day.
The list of senior living centers will also be on the Giving to Others to come.
