7th Annual MLK Potluck Food Drive - Saturday, January 17th at 5:30 pm

Loading donations from last year's event.
Dear Plainfield,

This year's event--the 7th Annual MLK Food Drive and Potluck Celebration--is scheduled for this coming Saturday, January 17, 2015 starting at 5:30 pm. As always, the party will be at our home at 535 West Eighth Street--click on the flier below and print it out. Bring a dish to share for the potluck, and meet and greet your friends and neighbors! 

First Lady Amelia Mapp and I are proud to once again serve as hosts for this wonderful event as we honor the legacy of Dr. King who, in his 1964 Nobel Prize acceptance speech, said: 

Click and print out the flier.

“Why should there be hunger and privation in any land, in any city, at any table when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life? We have amazing knowledge of vitamins, nutrition, the chemistry of food, and the versatility of atoms. There is no deficit in human resources; the deficit is in human will.”  
You may drop off your donations of canned goods and other non-perishable food items on our front porch anytime between now and Saturday. The weather forecast for Saturday looks wonderful so far (high 30s). Those of you attending the party can bring your donations with you. We look forward to welcoming you and to having a good time with all as we collectively do for others as we would have them do for us! 

Best regards,

Mayor Adrian O. Mapp
