The Black Heritage Society
Honoring Dr. King’s Legacy and the call for a day of service, the Black Heritage Society and the City of Houston are hosting a “Parade of Giving.” As the “Virtual 43rd Annual “Original” Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade” takes place online, a drive-thru donation drop-off site will be staged at MacGregor Park located at 5225 Calhoun Rd. to support Houstonians who’ve been significantly affected by the pandemic and need basic life essentials. The public is encouraged to donate blankets, water, baby diapers, baby wipes and more. Two local nonprofits, the World Youth Foundation and St. John’s Downtown, are the beneficiary organizations and will distribute the donated items to individuals with the greatest needs.
Groups and individuals can sign up to drive-thru and donate items by clicking https://originalmlkparade.org/parade-of-giving/. [Organizer's description]
