Dwyane Wade Will Help Families to Receive Food in Miami


FEED THE CHILDREN PARTNERS WITH THE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURAL COMMITTEE TO PROVIDE FOOD IN HONOR OF MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY
Families to Receive Food in
Miami

 Miami, Fla. (Jan. 13, 2009) –  Miami is one of the cities that will receive assistance, as global hunger relief leader Feed The Children has partnered with the Presidential Inaugural Committee's "Renewing America" National Day of Service to deliver food to needy families throughout the United States.   

On Monday, January 19th, as part of the National Day of Service and in remembrance of Martin Luther King Day, Oklahoma City-based Feed The Children has organized volunteers, churches and local organizations in 21 states to help feed, hope and serve the neediest in our communities. 

One of the truck distributions will occur in Miami at New Birth Baptist Church (2300 NW 135th Street), starting at 3 p.m. Miami Heat Guard Dwyane Wade will be attending the distribution. Four hundred food and personal care boxes will be distributed at this event. The families have been pre-identified by Feed The Children partner agency New Birth Baptist Church. 

Wade’s mother, Jolinda Wade, will be attending a food drop in Chicago on Jan. 19 at the Temple of Praise Binding and Loosing Ministry International Church where she serves as a pastor.  

Feed The Children Presidential Inaugural activities will include community food distributions at churches and similar organizations, dispatching 19 trucks with food and personal care items for over 7,000 families. In addition, volunteers and church groups will pack and build food boxes for needy children and their families at the organization's domestic regional distribution centers in CA, IN, OK, and TN.   The Presidential Inaugural activities are part of Feed The Children's ongoing commitment to bring food and hope wherever hunger and despair exists.

Feed The Children, along with hundreds of local organizations, charities, and community groups have answered the President-Elect Obama's call for a National Day of Service to help re-build and strengthen our communities in this time of great economic hardship.  Please visit the Presidential Inaugural website for a list of volunteer opportunities with Feed The Children and a complete list of Renewing America- National Day of Service activities and volunteer opportunities can be found on the web at (www.pic2009.org) or (usaservice.org).  The web site offers Americans the opportunity to make commitments, build communities, find opportunities to serve and share their results.

“America is experiencing economic distress right now, so there is a great need to help as many children and families as we can,” said Larry Jones, founder and president of Feed The Children. “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had big dreams for a better America and we honor his work. Today, thousands of families across the U.S. will walk away from this event with a brighter outlook on life knowing that someone will help them through their tough times.”
