Well the first day of the MLK Family and Friends Program is officially a done deal! To put it modestly, it was a success. We provided 100 sack lunches, and toiletries to everyone we encountered, but most importantly, we were able to implement a system which dealt with the disbursement of specific goods based on need, but also participation in a program designed to help one help oneself. It also allows us to learn more about our friends strengths and deficiencies, and most importantly, it allows us to learn their names, and build relationships. Seeing how smoothly things were going, without hesitation we had more people sign up for participation in the program next month already. To join the program, you must sign up the month before you begin to participate, which in turn allows us to get and maintain an accurate count by which we plan our entire run, with regards to how much product to prepare and take out. We are still in the early developmental stages of it, so I won’t go to far into detail, since change is inevitable. Other than that bit of news, it was also a very cold day, and it’s getting colder. We are officially out of blankets, as my wife and I had to go back out to give what few blankets we had left, including one of our comforters that was doing no one any good just sitting folded in the closet. With all that’s going on around us, like fires, and unnecessary Government Shutdowns, people are either finding themselves homeless, or on the brink of it, so don’t think you’re exempt from a bad turn. That’s why we think it’s important to help those who are just in a bad way, be it from self inflicted wounds, or the nefarious acts of others. Whatever the reason, we don’t judge. Our only requirement is that you are in need and want some help. For that reason, amongst many, it’s our mission to provide more services as we grow, but it’s a slow process, and one that takes due diligence, proper planning, and purposeful application. It’s my true belief that whatever community you live in, you should do your part to make it better, and do your part to build a sense of unity. It’s the only way to have a loving and thriving community. But hey I’m no Dr. Phil, it’s just my heartfelt opinion, and nothing more, but certainly nothing less. I know that as a race, not black, not white, not anything, just the Human Race, we are better than what we’re choosing to be. 🤔 Just a thought, so I hope you make the personal choice to get in the game of brotherly love!! ❤️🖤💚💛 So that said, have a great evening doing what makes you happy. Tell the ones you love that you love them. Always remember to be kind to others. And oh yeh, Peace and May God continue to Bless Us All!! ✌🏾🙏🏾
P. S. To date the MLK Humanity Project has served 10,250 sack lunches, homemade meals, hot and cold cereal breakfasts, and family packages throughout the Vallejo area. It is our profound commitment to continue to help those who want to help themselves, and those who unfortunately no longer can. So See you in the streets next Saturday Vallejo!!
P.S.S. Special thanks to all of our wonderful donors, volunteers, and supporters, past present, and future. The MLK Humanity Project is a true grassroots organization , and without the support of others, none of this would be happening. So again, “Thank you!!”🤗 As always, likening us is lovely, but sharing is caring, so help us spread the word!! We aren’t shy about asking for help, so in addition to asking for your help to spread the word!!
Always fight the power and vote!! ✊🏾✊🏼✊🏻
