This January, Kids Impact Community celebrated the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. by helping kids and families spread Dr. King’s message of equality and love. Their impact was captured in this video and through the below stats.

  • 200 kids, parents, and caregivers learned about Martin Luther King Jr. through story time with Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson and celebrated the National Day of Service with Meagan Johnson from the Milwaukee Diaper Mission culminating in a diaper dash donation.
  • 3,800+ diapers and 75 packages of wipes were donated to the Milwaukee Diaper Mission.
  • 125 Fostering Hope Duffel Bags were assembled by kid leaders and delivered to Kids Matter Inc. to support children entering foster care.
  • 30+ KIC kids (ages five and under) created a self-portrait art display at the North Shore Library to celebrate our similarities and differences in honor of MLK Day.
  • Seven families assisted 64 households at Kinship Community Food Center in selecting groceries, carrying bags, serving snacks, and cleaning up – reducing poverty through the power of food.
  • 100 hot and nutritious taco dinners were distributed at St. Vincent de Paul’s meal service.
  • Four small and mighty thinkers talked about big ideas like racism, racial justice, and how small actions can make a difference.
  • 560+ lunches packed for Just One More Ministry supporting Milwaukee residents struggling with food insecurity.
