Special thanks to Pam Hadley and Taliah Brown from speaking on your expertise. While the adults and parents were being educated on couponing and budgeting, we were able to offer the children a vision board workshop. We also helped the children to create and decorate piggy banks. Special thanks to St. Paul Church, Dominoes Pizza, Mrs. Arlene Sanders, Mrs. Pam Hadley, Mrs. Taliah Brown, Victoria McGee, Essie Hawkins and Larissa Mitchell.
This event was initially intended to not only be an informational symposium but also the premiere of a stage play I wrote on the topic. As things kept falling through the only performance that occurred was a 7 minute spoken-word piece comprised of about 5 original poems. What actually took place was far greater than anything I had envisioned. We had over 70 participating audience members from the community. We heard from Danny Bolden (father of Latasha Norman), Attorney Alicia Thomas, Sheriff Kelvin Williams and LaMorris Allen (Our House of Greenville, MS). Special thanks Mrs. Arlene Sanders and all the aforementioned speakers. This wouldn’t have been as great a success without you! Thank you.
I was honored to partner with the Sister to Sister Ministry to bring forth this workshop. Upon taking on the task I continued my research on the topic. This event is responsible for helping to gain some knowledge I didn’t have before hand! Thanks to Mrs. Arlene Sanders and St. Paul Church.
This event was the very first community event I’d attempted after college. The goal was to collaborate with other individuals and businesses to donate school supplies to families in the area. Ultimately we were able to donate 33 bags of school supplies. I intended to have games. music and face painting. The weather was supposed to turn sour so all that I’d hoped didn’t occur. We were able to paint faces. This event was able to happen because of a few businesses but ultimately there were many individuals who donated or volunteered.
