Help Me Help You Foundation to host free monthly community cookouts
5/5/2022, 6 p.m.
Seeking to spread a message of unity and peace, a Richmond foundation plans to host a community cookout each month that will be open to all featuring free food, music, games and other fun activities.
The opening event will be 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 7, at the Broad Rock Community Center, 4615 Ferguson Lane in South Side, the Help Me Help You Foundation has announced.
DJ Vonn will provide music at this event and the others planned for the first Saturday of each month in a bid to promote community togetherness and reduce violence, according to Michelle Mosby, the foundation’s executive director.
“We’re hoping other organizations will collaborate with us to help ‘rebuild the village,’” Ms. Mosby stated.
Similar community events are planned for the same hours Saturday, June 4, at Jefferson Park; Saturday, July 2, at Hotchkiss Field; and Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Randolph Community Center.
Details: Ms. Mosby or Thomas Mundy, (804)714-9730.
