That is why he wants to support the people in the community in any way he can.
“Whether it be photography, whether it be through videography or simply just myself showing up and supporting community efforts.

We want to make sure we support the community and programs that are doing great things.”
Many community members like Ida Floyd Austin who owns a deli next door to Green said that Green has a heart of gold and is a man of action.
Ida remembered when he helped her get the word out about the deli she just opened in January.
