About this event
We are hosting a food drive for the National Day of Service called by President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris as they prepare to be inaugurated on Wednesday, January 20th.
We join them in honoring the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, by conducting the drive on the observation of his birthday, Monday, January 18th, from 10AM-2PM.
This Food Drive will collect items, gift cards, and monetary donations for My Brother’s Table. Please see a list of items below. No cash contributions will be accepted, please bring checks made out to “My Brother’s Table” if making a monetary donation.
