It's been a rough week with lots of Good News stories, and Thursday we start with a fresh look for a West Savannah community.
Roughly 50 youngsters spent the last two months re-beautifying Tremont Park by cleaning yards, removing debris, and making homes and blocks more presentable. It's all part of the Savannah Impact Program which saw this group pick up over 20 tons of trash and debris out of Tremont Park, making the project a huge success.
This is the final week of the Summer Impact, a pilot program through Savannah Impact, the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department, and the city's Operation Cleanup.
Children from the Urban Hope Summer Program completed the Cooking Matters class, presented by the Coastal Heritage Society. The program held six sessions over three weeks that taught kids how to prepare healthy, affordable meals that their families can enjoy. The long-term goal of the class is to reduce malnourishment, childhood obesity rates, and make children healthier.
Finally, this week, 100 youngsters from the Frank Callen Girls and Boys Club walked to celebrate their 100th Anniversary, and also to bring the community along with them in a unity even that called for togetherness to be a solution to gang and gun violence in the city. After the walk, the Callen kids were entertained by Harlem Globetrotters legend, Gator Rivers. They also heard encouragement from Callen alumni and city officials.
