I'm raising money for our annual 4th of July block party. The donations will provide the neighborhood with a free meal and to have fun, socialize with some great people and watch some fireworks.
The Linden-Columbus neighborhood in which I was raised contained primarily working class families. For as long as I can remember, my mom has always opened her door and fed the neighborhood kids. Our home was the gathering place for our friends. NO child went hungry because my mom knew how to stretch a dollar and serve a wholesome meal. As time passed, my siblings and I got older and families moved out of the neighborhood. During a brainstorming session, we came up with the idea of hosting a block party. The Annual 4th of July Block Party consist of blocking off the street where it all began because our mother still lives in the neighborhood. This is the 3rd year and it is continuing to grow. We are asking for donations to get food, drinks, charcoal, buns, paper plates, silverware, napkins, tents, tables, chairs, and DJ to continue this fun filled and family friendly community event. Whatever you can donate would be gladly appreciated. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this request.
