Natick Army Labs commemorates MLK Day!

NATICK, Mass. (Jan. 17, 2014) -- In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy, the personnel of the Natick Soldier Systems Center hosted a food drive Jan.. 6-13.

NSC was among several local food banks who received a large donation of non-perishable foods.  In total, 6,000 pounds of food was collected.

"I want to thank the Black Employment Program Committee for making the special emphasis observance into a day of service," said Lt. Col. Brian Greata, USAG-Natick garrison commander. "This is a win-win event and allows us to showcase NSSC's community service spirit in giving back and helping others.

"Martin Luther King Jr. dedicated his life to pursuing the greater good. The NSSC Day of Service honors that legacy and improves the lives of those in need from the local community. The volunteers who gathered all the donations for this program did a remarkable job, and represented NSSC superbly."

According to Greg Tutuny, executive director of the Natick Service Council, "We rely on the generosity of the Natick community, including local citizens (and) organizations," Tutuny said. "We serve low-income residents in the town of Natick … (and) the food pantry is our main program.

"Natick is an incredibly generous town and we work close with (NSSC) and a number of different initiatives and we're just proud to partner with them."

The Natick Service Council serves roughly 700 families in Natick, and Tutuny estimated the donated food will serve about 100 families for one to two weeks.

Through service projects that strengthen communities and create solutions, as well as empower individuals and bridge barriers, Dr. King is celebrated by all Americans of every age and background.
