Maywood community leaders are planning for the annual Safe Summer Initiative, designed to provide area young people with positive recreational, volunteer and work activities.
“Organizations, churches, community groups and related agencies will come together from across the community to plan and implement a wide variety of activities to engage youth at all age levels and interests,” said Maywood Trustee Isiah Brandon, who founded the initiative in 2014.
Brandon said that members of the initiative are seeking sponsorship, volunteers and other forms of support.
The first planning meeting will take place on Friday, April 13, 7 p.m., at village Council Chambers, 125 S. 5th Ave. in Maywood. For more info or to RSVP, call Maywood Mayor Edwenna Perkins’ office at (708) 450-4492. VFP
