“Now is the time to make justice a reality for
all of God’s children.”
— Martin Luther King Jr. in his “I Have a Dream” speech given in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 28, 1963.
This photo essay by Cat Gong shows a Martin Luther King Day food collection hosted at the warehouse at the Church of the Brethren General Offices in Elgin, Ill.
Youth from across the city of Elgin came together in the spirit of service on the morning of Jan. 21 to sort and distribute the estimated 4 tons of food that was donated by churches and other organizations. The food went to a number of local food pantries in the Elgin area.
This was the second annual Martin Luther King Day food collection hosted by the church’s general offices.
