Food Drive

On May 23 please bring nonperishable food items (cans, cereal, etc.) to assist the grocery program of the James Mott Community Assistance Program. James Mott, a soft-spoken, kind, compassionate African American with a strong commitment to community service and justice, after graduating from Howard law school, sued and won access to county facilities for all African Americans. He also organized citizens to combat lack of sewer lines, paved streets, and street lights. The children that attended the local community center named for him became his surrogate family. Today the Center?s free programs provide food, rental and utility assistance, job counseling, professional clothing for job interviews, transportation for the elderly, and hourly employment targeting needy teenagers.
