Goldsboro-Wayne NAACP To Fill Blessing Boxes On MLK Day

Goldsboro-Wayne NAACP To Fill Blessing Boxes On MLK Day

Like other like-minded organizations, the Goldsboro-Wayne branch of NAACP is remembering Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 18, by ensuring the community receives much needed support, especially considering the impact of COVID-19 on those who are marginalized, hungry, and often forgotten. This will be accomplished by supporting The Blessing Box initiative of Goldsboro started in Wayne County by Councilwoman Brandi Matthews. Members of the NAACP local branch will pair up to put non-perishable food, socks, gloves, diapers, toiletries, school supplies and other items in 18 Blessing Boxes throughout Wayne County.

The Goldsboro-Wayne branch of the NAACP is carrying out its mission to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination. Donating to the Blessing Box addresses the social and economic issues in the mission statement.
