Thank You for Support

I am sending out a sincere thank-you to the generous members of our community. They didn’t let the cancellation of our annual Super Bowl Sunday Chicken Barbecue stop them from continuing to support The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. High School Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Every year since 1968, we have presented scholarships to local high school seniors, and because of your contributions, we are able to continue. Now, donations are more important than ever because the pandemic has caused additional financial hardship for deserving students headed for college.

Soon we will be selecting worthy recipients for this year’s awards.  We have assisted 575 students over the years, but there are many more outstanding young men and women who could really use a boost.

So remember, it’s never too late to help. We gratefully accept donations year-round. Go to and click on “Donate” to make a tax-deductible contribution to the MLK Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Or send checks to:  P.O.Box 1693, San Luis Obispo, CA 93406.
