Civil Rights Museum, Food Bank to honor Dr. King's sacrifice through service | Community Spirit
The National Civil Rights Museum will honor the leadership, vision, beliefs and sacrifice of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by inviting you to support the families who depend on the Mid-South Food Bank.
On January 21 visitors can bring canned good items and receive $1 off the discounted King Holiday museum admission. The canned goods will help stock the shelves of the food bank, and eventually serve the 20 percent of the population of Shelby County that's struggling with food insecurity,
"We are proud to be part of the National Civil Rights Museum's programs for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The Museum has included us in the event for several years, resulting in hundreds of pounds of food to help feed hungry people in our community," said president & CEO of Mid-South Food Bank Estella Mayhue-Greer.
The Museum will host a number of entertainment opportunites and activities, including dramatic/musical performances, arts & crafts, storytelling, food vendors and door prizes for the entire family, all while celebrating this year's theme, “Education Equality: Creating A Movement in the Community.”
