Fishers announces celebration for MLK Day & National Day of Service

The City of Fishers will host its annual MLK Day celebration with a community-wide food drive, volunteer opportunities, and special activities that encourage residents to spread messages of hope and kindness during the National Day of Service.  

Community Food Drive

On Monday, January 15, food donations will be collected during a Pack the Snowplow event at several locations across the city, including all three Fishers Kroger stores, Holland Park, and Billericay Park, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Residents can also order donations online and have them delivered directly to the collection site through an Amazon Wish List. A list of donation needs is available at

From January 8 through January 12, food drive donation bins will also be available around the city at the Hamilton East Public Library (5 Municipal Drive), Fishers YMCA (9012 126th Street), Fishers City Services Building (3 Municipal Drive), and Fishers Parks Headquarters (8100 E. 106th Street, Suite 150) for residents who want to donate prior to the celebration on January 15.
