Food Donation/Park Activities Continue For MLK Holiday with Adjustments

Food Donation/Park Activities Continue For MLK Holiday with Adjustments

White River State Park attractions will offer several activities in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. Indiana State Museum, NCAA Hall of Champions, Eiteljorg Museum and Indianapolis Zoo visitors can explore several civil rights exhibits, presentations and displays. Maggie Ranello is the deputy director of White River State Park and said its annual partnership with Gleaners Food Bank will continue, but it has to be different this year.

“We just ask for a monetary donation to Gleaners Food Bank, and that can be done on site through dip jars or through a virtual food drive that we are hosting this year as well, so people can make a donation before they come on site,” Ranello said.

Although parking and admission are free, between 10 am and 7 pm, Ranello said each facility has specific ticket and visitor policies.

“Because of COVID 19, there are different protocols, different policies, so before coming onsite, please check into all their different personal websites,” Ranello said.

Attendees are required to wear masks unless eating or drinking, and to adhere to social guidelines at all attractions.
