The Marietta Civitan club is a longtime partner of MUST Ministries, a local philanthropic organization serving the basic needs of our community members, including providing food for the homeless. Marietta’s Civitan chapter has made a commitment to provide dinner at MUST’s Loaves and Fishes Community Kitchen on the 20th of each month, year-round.

Always a rewarding endeavor, club volunteers purchase, deliver and cook the dinner, then don their Civitan aprons before serving the meal to about 70-80 homeless individuals and families living in the area. A hearty entrée such as spaghetti or chicken pot pie is often served with buttered toast and salad for a well-balanced plate.

It was a happy coincidence that their regular monthly service date fell on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – a national day of service – on Jan. 20. The King Center promotes the holiday as “a day on, not a day off.”
