MLK Day Food Drive

Since the Martin Luther King Jr. Day activities were cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, three local groups got together to help people in need on the holiday. The Second Bethlehem Baptist Association, the Martin Luther King Jr. Commission and the Marion County National Pan-Hellenic Council were all involved in the food drive where about 55 motorists drove in a caravan from the Second Bethlehem Baptist Theological Seminary to Interfaith Emergency Services food warehouse to deliver the donated food. Eric Cummings, a Marion County School Board member, who was one of the organizers of the food drive, said that instead of a parade, about 10,000 pounds of food and supples were donated to Interfaith on MLK Day.
