Unity Walk to Honor MLK
Join the City of Kentwood on Saturday, March 5 for a Unity Walk to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Residents are invited to gather at the food court at Woodland Mall, 3195 28th St SE, at 9:30 a.m. for a walk, which will end in front of Von Maur at 10 a.m.
After the walk, there will be a ceremony at 10:00am in front of Von Maur including:
• Welcome by Mayor Kepley
• Proclamation presented by various community members
• Coffee and cake
The event will also serve as a food drive to stock Kentwood’s Little Free Pantry. We will be collecting canned goods and other non-perishable items. Guests are asked to park in front of the food court and enter at that location.
The Little Free Pantry began as a community service project for MLK Day in 2017. Located inside the Kentwood Activities Center (355 48th St. SE), it helps a number of Kentwood families in need. The concept is simple: anyone may give; anyone may take - no questions asked. The Little Free Pantry is available during normal business hours: 8:30am-5:30pm Mon-Thur, 8:00am-4:00pm on Fridays.
