“We want all children and teachers from our community to feel ready and excited to head back to school,” said Brooklyn-Curtis Bay Safe Streets Site Director Corey Winfield, who is leading the collection and distribution effort. Community involvement is the core of Safe Streets’ work in Brooklyn-Curtis Bay and Sandtown-Winchester. In June 2019, when the Brooklyn-Curtis Bay Safe Streets opened it hosted a festive party for the young people of the neighborhood.
