We're spotlighting Martin Luther King Jr. Day events that didn’t make it into our print issue.
On Sat., Jan. 13, the Community Empowerment Association and state Rep. Ed Gainey commemorate MLK’s Poor People’s Campaign with an inaugural collection for the Emergency Relief & Disaster Preparedness Distribution Center.
The center will collect and distribute smoke detectors, water pitchers with filters, carbon-monoxide detectors, and children’s winter coats.
The collection takes place from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
The center is located at 7120 Kelly St., in Homewood; for more information, call 412-371-3689, x 44.
