2017 marks the Ninth Annual MLK Food Drive and Potluck Celebration hosted by First Lady Amelia Mapp and me. We are proud to once again open our home for this wonderful event as we honor the legacy of Dr. King. As always, the party will be at our home at 535 West Eighth Street--click on the flier and print it out. Bring a dish to share for the potluck, and meet and greet your friends and neighbors!
You may drop off your donations of canned and packaged goods, as well as toiletry items, on our front porch (535 West 8th Street) anytime between now and Saturday, 1/14. 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!
*We are requesting that attendees also bring some toiletries to be
donated to our residents who are in need of them. Toothbrushes,
toothpaste, deodorants, soap, shampoo, sanitary napkins, lotion,
mouthwash, and other sundries. We began the toiletry drive two summers ago at our annual Community Barbecue, and the donations were very much
appreciated by those who received them. Please be a
generous donor again this year.
Mayor Adrian O. Mapp
