This past Monday, I participated in a service project that honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This project has been organized the past 20 years to feed the homeless outside of the MLK Library on the holiday to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy. WFOP has annually provided a nutritious meal and warm clothing for homeless citizens in the nation’s capitol as a way to continue to draw attention to the plight of the poor and neglected.
This year, in addition to volunteering, the group collected interview clothes for the homeless, along with warm coats. I was very proud of the work that the countless folks in DC contributed to this effort. It was great to see my friends, and despite the cold, distribute clothes and warm food to people that are down on their luck. Thanks to my cousin who put me on to this event, and who encourages me to participate every year.
And in true Soulcialite status, I have a picture with Miss Black District of Columbia, Amanda Lewis
God Bless us All.
(Selfishly, I will continue to say that I am collecting receipts for tax deductions and planning to contribute monthly to at least one charity – Lupus Foundation, Goodwill, WFOP, and the Vietnam Vets of America. I encourage you to do so as well.)
