DETROIT - Nearly 100 HAP employees from Detroit, Troy and Flint offices honored Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy on Monday, Jan. 21, by volunteering with seven community organizations throughout metro Detroit and Flint.
“It’s a rewarding experience for our employees to extend a helping hand to community organizations,” said DeAndre Lipscomb, vice president of marketing and community outreach for HAP. “At HAP, it’s heartening to have so many of our employees participate in this day of service.”
In 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, designating the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service.
As part of its day of service, HAP employees packed boxes of food for Forgotten Harvest and at three Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan locations. As part of a City of Troy service project, HAP volunteers assembled care packages with handwritten cards of encouragement for those serving in the military. Other volunteers donated blood, packed warmth and hygiene kits for the homeless and made blankets for the needy.
In Flint, HAP employees served meals at the North End Soup Kitchen and sorted donations at Carriage Town Ministries.
