Whew!! It’s finally here, and by that we mean 2021. It’s been a tough past year for so many, especially our less fortunate brothers and sisters. However, the issues facing our friends were preceded long before the pandemic, and unfortunately will probably persist after it is under control, if ever. It’s important for us to try and improve upon our efforts and our ability to provide expanded and more focused services. To accomplish and accommodate our goals, we will be actively working towards securing a facility. Thus will allow us to centralize our operation, and provide service 7 days a week and still continue our Healthy Start Breakfast Program and our foundational Sack Lunch Program!
With so many new challenges, we headed out to bring in the new year with a nice hot breakfast. Since it’s been consistently rainy out, we passed out tarps to all who were clearly exposed to the elements, with the promise of more and equally pertinent items to follow this coming Saturday. As we proceed cautiously into the new year, we will do so with purpose and commitment. There are many issues to face, but until we secure a facility, it’s practically impossible to enact programs in an effective and sustainable manner. So we will certainly make sure to cross our T’s and dot our I’s, and keep y’all posted in the process. It’s our intent to proceed with the distribution of MLK Family & Friends Program membership cards starting in February and awaiting pending potential funding. We shall see. Til next time, have a safe rest of the week, and let’s all make it a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
