A2D2 MLK Day of Service Food Gathering for Cass Community Services

Every year, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, thousands of volunteers from across the country unite in service. This year, ahead of the historic and exciting inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the Presidential Inaugural Committee will participate in the National Day of Service, modeling the empathic leadership of the Biden-Harris Administration and honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. As part of the historic Inauguration, we ask you to take up service in your own community. Together, we will aim to complete more than one million hours of community service to begin doing what we set out to do during the presidential campaign: restoring the soul of the nation and building back better.

We invite you to participate in the MLK day of service by collecting food for Cass Community Social Services. Cass is a Detroit-based agency with a person-centered philosophy, dedicated to providing food, housing, health services, and job programs. We chose an agency located in Detroit, since the city has suffered disproportionately in respect to COVID, food insecurity, joblessness, and homelessness. Cass has responded to these urgent concerns by sometimes delivering as many as 300 food boxes a week. There’s a particular need for non-perishable groceries including:
Peanut butter and jelly
Canned tuna and chicken
Hearty canned soups
Spaghetti sauce and pasta
Individually wrapped snacks
(No glass containers please)
More information about Cass can be found on YouTube, Facebook and their website: casscommunity.org

If you would like to donate food, please email us at [email protected] or [email protected] to coordinate a pick up.
