As part of the Day of Service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Monday, Jan. 18 — and as a part of the Biden Inaugural celebration — the Women’s Caucus of the Democrats of Rim Country took part in serving supper at the Payson Homeless & Homeless Veterans Initiative.
King was aware of the problems of hunger and poverty in our country and sought ways to solve them. Like King, Biden recognizes the many economic problems facing Americans today, and he will work to find solutions.
Several people were served dinner and received assistance from the staff at the warming center. The center, at the Mount Cross Lutheran church, not only offers a hot meal, but warm clothing, resources, showers, and more. They assist the homeless, and also those people who are struggling to make ends meet. Meals are offered seven days a week.
