Volunteers Honor the Legacy of MLK, Jr.

MLKMarch2015-4

Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc. (MHM) joined thousands in downtown San Antonio on Monday, Jan. 19 to honor the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. The City of San Antonio hosts one of the largest marches in the country to commemorate the civil rights leader.

MHM team members, friends and families met early on Monday morning and enthusiastically marched with countless others during the popular event. Marchers celebrated past victories for equality and justice, in addition to inspiring hope and love for younger generations. This year's official theme for the 28th annual MLK March was "Marching Together from Past to Present for Our Future."

In addition to participating in the march, MHM hosted a table, distributing bags to attendees. "It was an honor to participate in the MLK March and celebrate the late Rev. King. I really enjoyed serving alongside my MHM family as we shared information about MHM's services with the community," shared Jennifer Correa-Knoulton, director of nursing.
