The second annual event, "WE ARE THE DREAM": MLK EXPO 2022, will be held at:
John C. Gibb's High School
850 34th St S, St. Petersburg, FL 33711
January 15, 2021 (12:00 pm- 4:00 pm)
This year's giveback will be unique as we are hosting a Grant Award Ceremony for local business owners by helping them support their business needs or services. The community is currently taking nominations to vote on who has shown exemplary servitude and benefits to its surrounding communities while also accepting donations through crowdfunding. In partnership with Gibb's High School, small businesses will be highlighted during the MLK event, free resources, raffles, and entertainment for the entire family to enjoy.
Our mission is to educate, empower, and support residents, inspiring those around them to advocate to achieve the same in their backyard. We ask that you help us support this initiative by spreading awareness for this FREE community event with the public and joining us during our day of service.
