The Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Merchants Association (MLKJDMA) is launching its inaugural Stomp Out Homelessness Challenge Walk on Saturday, June 9, 2018 in support of the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless.
“All of us have been asked to step-up and continue the dream of Dr. King and this is one of the ways that we’re doing it,” said Terry Collier, President of the MLKJDMA. The organization is partnering with the Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless (ATFH), its new neighbor in the 2001 Martin L. King Jr. Drive building, for the first time. “We’re excited about being a new member of the Westside community and we’re excited about partnering with the MLKJDMA,“ said Carl Hartrampf, Director of the Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless. Collier continued, “In keeping with Ambassador Andrew Young’s vision in 1981, when he formed this Task Force and Dr. King’s Vision of serving the underserved, the leadership of the MLKJDMA is inviting everyone to come join the walk!”
