Tributes made across Cleveland in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Tributes were made across Cleveland for the man who dedicated his life to others and the pursuit of racial justice: Dr. Martin Luther King Junior.

On the East side, the first-ever “MLK Day of Giving” held at Randall Park High School.

For Brandon Chrostowski, the founder of Edwin’s Restaurant giving back means carefully cooking and packaging these meals to help the community.

Chrostowski told 19 News he was inspired to do this because of the compassion Dr. King had for the community.

“Representation of a man who wanted more & that’s what we’re gonna deliver we’re gonna deliver more today,” he said.

People were able to pick up the food through a contact-free drive-thru.

The giving didn’t stop there.

Pastor Paul Jennings from the Forest Hills Presbyterian Church said that many people donated food items to their pantry.

“It’s just amazing and at the end of the day the people are so appreciative,” Jennings said.

Jennings is happy to know that even after all these years people remember the good deeds done by Martin Luther King Junior and show humanity to those that are suffering.

“At the end of the day you just go wow… today we served our peak was 370 families in none day,” he said.
