John 3:16 Mission participated in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day festivities by entering a float in the annual parade.
The Mission’s Family & Youth Center serves a largely African American population, providing a range of programs for children and adults as well as operating a food pantry and clothing room.
“We honor the legacy of Dr. King and everything that he accomplished for African Americans and for all Americans in the civil rights arena,” said Mission President & CEO, Rev. Steve Whitaker.
The float, built by Mission staff, won third prize in the non corporate category.
