The newsletter not only looks a little different to complement the MLK's website, it also has some new content. Each week, as seen above in this edition, there will be a row of linked images to connect you directly to Hunger Services, Community Programs, and Education so you can quickly access the information you care about most. At the bottom of the newsletter you will find the mobile food pantry schedule and a downloadable monthly calendar.
As these newsletters are added to the website, they will also be available in Spanish and Portuguese in an effort to make these resources accessible to more people.
We'd love to hear from you! Please let us know what you think of the new design, if you have requests for types of content to include, or if you have any suggestions for improvement. Email Kim Botelho at KBotelho@MLKCCenter.org
