Know Your Neighbors
I am a student at California State University, Fresno. I would like to inform you of great things happening in our community.
I am in Scholars in Service, which collaborates with other organizations to help the surrounding neighbors. My internship is Community Development Corporation of Eldorado Park associated with Wesley United Methodist Church. There are many programs that I’m involved with, but there is one in particular that I wanted to tell you about. This program is called “Neighborhood Resource Center.” This place is unique because the residents are the ones who run the show. The center and everything inside is donated. Everyone is welcome at the Resource Center to get assistance or just a place to meet other residents.
I believe the Neighborhood Resource Center is a great example of how other neighborhoods can start building relationships in their community. It is important to know who lives in your neighborhood. Every Friday, the residents have a potluck, so if you’re ever in the neighborhood, swing by so you can see it for yourself.
