On Monday, January 18, 2021, the Lovell Johnson Quality of Life Center, 1530 W. Atkinson Ave., along with several other organizations hosted a food giveaway and COVID-19 testing event to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The volunteer led community event was sponsored by the Lovell Johnson Quality of Life Center, Jump at the Sun, LLC., Health Connection, Inc., and Impower.

All are members of the Milwaukee United Emergency Operation Center’s Community Resilience Response Team and have been joined by St. Mark’s AME Church. The purpose of this event was to support Milwaukee residents during the pandemic by helping them to restock their cabinets, get tested and get additional information and support to help reduce their exposure to COVID-19.
