Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission announces statewide pledge drive during the month of September to assist Texas flood victims

He that is greatest among you shall serve. Use it for human good. -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission announces a pledge drive to assist neighbors in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey. The agency’s goal is to raise money to assist in recovery efforts and to aid displaced victims affected by widespread flooding and disaster. “It’s a matter of neighbors helping neighbors, says DuShun Scarbrough, Executive Director. We never know when we might need our neighbors. Dr. King challenged us to see the world as our neighborhood, in this regards, it is our responsibility to help our neighbors. It will take some time to heal, rebuild the city and those lives impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Ironically, September is also National Emergency Preparedness Month, and as a state agency, we are asking Arkansans to assist in these efforts to aid our neighbors. They need warm meals, clean clothes, water, toiletries, medicine; we want to do all that we can to assist them during this difficult time. No donation is too small.” Scarbrough along with members of the Commission and volunteers will later travel to Texas with 20 to thirty cases of water to donate and assist with volunteerism.

The Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission will accept pledges during the month of September from September 1-September 30, 2017 Midnight via the following link www.crowdrise.com/AMLKC.
