MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Acting Mayor Cavalier Johnson celebrated the season of giving by helping volunteers Friday morning, Dec. 24.

It's one of his first official events in his new position as Milwaukee's leader.

He joined the Running Rebels Friday to prepare and hand out food and clothing.

Mayor Johnson says he's just doing his part to give back and support organizations doing the same.

The distribution event was sponsored by The Gathering.

"Coming here to this event today, it just goes to show as a reminder to me and to people all across our city, that there are folks in this community who are looking out and doing the right thing and trying to serve people in this community that are in need every single day. And so I wanted to make sure I honored that," Johnson said.

After the holidays, Mayor Johnson plans to address Covid in Milwaukee and the possibility of an indoor vaccine mandate. 

He says he plans to meet with the city's health commissioner next week.

For now, he encourages those who can, to get vaccinated.
