2020 MLK Day of Service

Under the direction of our Program Director, South Suburban Chicago children participated in a food drive benefiting Respond Now in collaboration with the Village of Flossmoor and volunteers from Homewood-Flossmoor High School National Honor Society. Over 100 bags donated by Meijer were filled with non-perishable food items donated by our families as well as the community. In addition they learned about the life and legacy of Dr. King and participated in an exercise conducted by a JacPac Dad illustrating the concept of privilege and along with it, the responsibility to lift others who may not have been as fortunate.
