Julia Scheib

Next year's MLK America's Sunday Supper will be held at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 17, at Lincoln Charter School, 559 W. King St., York.


The event, organized by Mayor Kim Bracey, Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness, and Lincoln Charter School, is free and open to the public.

America's Sunday Supper is a national event sponsored by the organization Points of Light, which is inspired by the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King to get people from diverse backgrounds together to share a meal and discuss issues that affect their community, emphasizing the power each person has to make a difference.

Participants will watch the documentary "Inocente," which is about a homeless 15-year-old artist, and then discuss the issue of homeless unaccompanied youth over a meal.

Members of the community are encouraged to bring donations of items like toiletries, socks, large backpacks, hats and gloves for homeless unaccompanied youth.

Those who can't attend the event but want to donate can bring items to City Hall, 101 S. George St.
