MLK Day: Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and while the large MLK Day Walk-a-Thon in Riverside, originally set for Monday, has been canceled for the second year in a row, there are still events that will be in-person and some online taking place this weekend and throughout the next few weeks. For instance, Keep Riverside Clean and Beautiful and the Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce are holding a MLK Day of Service on Monday where volunteers will clean up trash and graffiti. A similar event will also take place in Pomona. Many colleges are holding virtual events to honor the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. as well. Details on events near you can be found here.
Food Distribution: Magnolia Church and Feeding America are holding a drive-thru food distribution this Saturday morning (Jan 15) from 9am – 10:15 to help those in need in our community. You can get more details and register here.
