MLK Day of Service 2013

rob loucks

This Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service was an extra special event this year because we had the pleasure of partnering with Playworks of Portland to plan and coordinate our MLK Day Service project.  A committee of hard working AmeriCorps members from Confluence and Playworks worked to develop this fun and meangingful Service opportunity.

AmeriCorps members and staff from Confluence and Playworks joined with Woodlawn Methodist Church community members to pack bags of food for the Portland Backpack Lunch Program.  The Portland Backpack Lunch Program provides healthy weekend lunches to students who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford a healthy meal while school is out of session.

Confluence, Playworks and 200+ community members packed over 650 lunches that will be distributed in the coming weeks to 164 students at King, Woodlawn, and Scott elementary schools.  

Thank you to New Seasons, St. Johns Coffee Roaster, Random Order, and Grand Central Bakery for donating tasty food and delicious coffee!
