WMCAP Participates in Marietta College’s
Feed the Dream Martin Luther King Day of Service Challenge Food Drive

In conjunction with Marietta College’s Feed the Dream Martin Luther King Day of Service Challenge, Washington Morgan Community Action collected non-perishable items for local food pantries from January 19 to the 22. The items donated from this drive will be going towards food pantries in both Washington and Morgan Counties. All together, the agency collected 190 items to be donated. When added to items collected through the event at Marietta College, a total of over 700 items were donated by the community. Other organizations involved with the Feed the Dream challenge were Ohio Campus Compact, Upward Bound at Washington State Community College, Right Path for Washington County and Marietta College’s Charles Sumner Harrison Organization.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service started in 1994, and people have been taking this day off and turning it into a day on. The day encourages Americans to serve their communities and support MLK’s dream of creating a society based on justice. According to the national website for the MLK Day of Service, there were over 13,000 projects nation-wide, more than there has ever been in the past. Thank you to all who participated in making this such a success.
