Maslow's Army holding outreach Sunday to honor volunteer who passed away
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - As Maslow's Army gears up for their 49th outreach Sunday, they will also remember Kenny Martin, a volunteer and friend whose body was found at a bus stop downtown Tuesday morning.
Investigators are still trying to determine if freezing temperatures led to his death.
So Sunday, the organization is holding Candles for Kenny at Fountain Square.
Sam Landis who helped start Maslow's Army said Kenny was extended family to him. Kenny showed up at the first outreach Maslow's Army ever did, and after that he kept coming back and offered to volunteer with them.
Sam said they normally like that their volunteers get housing first, but they made an exception for Kenny because they saw how much he enjoyed serving others and his dedication to the work they were doing.
Now, they're holding Candles for Kenny in his honor every Sunday until January 28. They'll be down at Founatin Square starting at 12:45 p.m. to pass out hats, gloves and clothes to those in need, as well as pizza and water.
For each memorial, they'll then light candles and walk to the place Kenny took his last breath. After that, they'll walk to Prince of Peace Church where they'll have a special display of pictures of Kenny, and that will be followed by a Lutheran service.
