Safe Streets of Brooklyn Curtis-Bay is collecting school supplies for children and families of Southwest Baltimore.
“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.
Donations can be made on-line through the back-to-school Amazon wishlist or left at Safe Streets office located at 423 East Patapsco Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21225. Safe Streets will distribute the items on Thursday, August 29 at the Brooklyn Homes housing complex and on Friday, August 30, at the Brooklyn Boys and Girls Club.
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 from the neighborhood who enjoyed a treats, a cookout, bounce houes and more.
