Monday January 18, 2021, Multiple Locations in Harrisonburg and Rockingham,

In January 2021, the Arc of Harrisonburg and Rockingham hosted its first annual MLK Day of Service Food Drive & Distribution in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Food donations were collected in partnership with Hope Distributed throughout January 2020. Food boxes were packed and distributed with the support of many volunteers across three different sites across the county in order to create inclusive volunteering opportunities for those with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD) while addressing food insecurity. 

For more information about the vision behind this initiative, read this statement by The Arc of the US. This event was in partnership with Hope Distributed and The Arc of the US.
