Yes we can: March for MLK and donate to end hunger

We have a dream -- that no one in Colorado will go hungry today. For the first time, the Martin Luther King Jr. Colorado Holiday Commission has partnered with Food Bank of the Rockies, by hosting a soup/chili food and fund drive at the beginning and conclusion of today's Marade in honor of MLK.

Colorado's MLK march/parade is the largest in the nation, and volunteers from the group Capitol Hill for Change will be stationed throughout City Park and the Denver Civic Center -- the beginning/ending points of the Marade --this morning with food barrels for donations of soup/chili (yes we can!) and canisters for cash donations. Following the Marade, Food Bank of the Rockies and other vendors will have booths set up at Civic Center.
