Unity in the Community Potluck at McKinley on Sat. Dec. 18

Sacramento’s Midtown neighborhood prides itself in being a devoted, unified community. Sadly, as our community struggles together during times of economic hardship, we sometimes forget what it means to celebrate Midtown’s unity and diversity.

In an effort to bridge the gap in the community, members of Midtown are hosting “Unity in the Community,” a potluck event designed to bring together every member of our neighborhood, regardless of class, race or background – in the name of humanity.

The event is being organized and directed by all Midtown’s members, the fortunate and less fortunate.

(Sign up for the event on Facebook, here)

To create a human connection through food, conversation and relaxation. There is no agenda – just community members of all circumstances spending time with one another. The hope is to break the barriers that separate and divide us – to see those without homes sharing meals with their fellow community members.

ALL community members. Those members of all colors, creeds, and backgrounds – those with homes, those without homes, and anyone in between. If you call Midtown, Downtown, or East Sacramento your home, then your presence is encouraged.

Please bring  any type of food dish, dessert, drink, plates, napkins. If you wish to become more involved please contact either Jimmy Spencer or Armando Gonzalez (contacts listed below).
