Original MLK Day Virtual Experience and Parade of Giving
Join us as we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a virtual experience and parade of giving. Honoring Dr. King’s Legacy and the call for a day of service, the Black Heritage Society is hosting a Parade of Giving to support Houstonians who’ve been significantly impacted by the pandemic and are in need of basic life essentials. As the virtual parade takes place, a drive-thru donation drop-off site will be staged at MacGregor Park (5225 Calhoun Rd, Houston, TX 77021). Local nonprofits, the World Youth Foundation and St. John’s Downtown are the beneficiary organizations and will distribute the donated items to those with the greatest needs.
Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update it immediately.
