The community spirit was high during a recent Martin Luther King Jr. Day volunteer event in Richmond.

Permanente employees partnered with Urban Tilth at the Unity Park Community Plaza to honor Dr. King’s legacy of diversity, inclusion and service to others.

“We are so happy to partner with so many community organizations and individuals here in Richmond to honor Dr. King’s legacy with a day of service,” Kaiser Permanente Richmond Medical Center Physician-in-Chief John Morehouse, MD, said.

Volunteers of all ages transformed the lush gardens at Unity Park. They beautified the Richmond Greenway while enjoying a festive celebration with music, dancing and food.

“We were delighted to partner with Urban Tilth to make Martin Luther King Jr. Day a ‘day on’ for our community,” Kaiser Permanente East Bay Senior Vice President and Area Manager Ed Chan, FACHE, said. “Seeing the impact we can make together, by beautifying the Richmond Greenway and Unity Park, is a testament to our commitment to improve the communities that we serve.”
