MLK Community Center


The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center was incorporated in 1922 as the Newport Community Center to provide recreational activities for community residents. Since then the center has emerged as a multicultural, multi-service agency providing a wide variety of human services particularly to the low-income residents of Newport County.

St. Mary's contributes time, talent, and treasure to the MLK Community Center. You are invited to make a food contribution every week to support the center's food pantry. You are also invited to join the Food 2 Friends program delivering groceries to shut-ins. For more information visit
