2013 World Changers In Action Here in the Pettaway Community

2013 World Changers In Action Here in the Pettaway Community 

We were  fortunate to have the World Changers group working within our community assisting some of our elderly residents who needed their homes repaired.

Some of our elderly residents received brand-new roofs; homes repainted and new siding.  We have been truly blessed by this group that has made tremendous changes in the housing situation and lives of our elderly within our village.

2013 Cereal Drive

I would like to thank each person who donated toward the Cereal Drive.  We had residents from the Pettaway neighborhood association as well as the Dunbar Class of 1948, Horace Class of 1967, Pettaway Silver Senior group, the Road to Success organization and Out of the Attic History Gallery who so graciously donated toward this endeavor.

I was happy to transport 85 boxes of cereal to City Hall for the Cereal Drive which in turn was given to Arkansas Food Bank for hungry Arkansans during the summer months.  Again, “thank you” for your continued support toward assisting me in whatever project I ask you to participate in.

2013 World Changers Press Conference  

To all residents within the Pettaway Park neighborhood, we are again fortunate to have the World Changer group that will be working within our community assisting some of our elderly residents who need their homes painted.

The Press Conference will be held at 2020 Rock Street at the home of Mrs. Pearlie Hill on tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.  Not only will her home be painted but they have already removed the old roof and she now has a beautiful brand new roof that she is so very proud to have.   Mrs. Hattie Higgs, a 92 year young resident who lives on Commerce Street as well as Mrs. Gladys’s Toms, an 84 year young   resident who lives on Bragg Street will also have their homes scrapped, caulked, rotten boards removed if needed and painted through the City program with the World Changer group.

 

We are truly blessed to have a group that will again make some tremendous changes in the housing situation and lives of our elderly within our village.

There is one more drive that I am participating in and I will again need your assistance in order to be successful.

The last week of the eight-week program will coincide with the start of Fire Prevention Week October 6-12, 2013.  The last day of class will consist of hands-on training and demonstrations such as vehicle extrication and rappelling.

 

The application enrollment period is from July 8, 2013 to August 15, 2013.  Class begins Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.  All classes will be held at the Little Rock Fire Department Fire Training Facility, located at 7000 Murray Street.  Criminal background checks will be conducted on all applicants for the Citizens Fire Academy.

Good News For Elderly Residents Within The Pettaway Area

 

 

Little Rock
World Changers

July 8-13-2013

 

GOOD NEWS FOR ELDERLY RESIDENTS WITHIN THE PETTAWAY AREA

The World Changers group will hold a Press Conference on July 9th at 10:00 a.m., at Mrs. Pearlie Hill residence which is 2020 Rock Street.   Some of our other elderly residents whose name I submitted for housing assistance are the following Mrs. Hattie Higgs, who lives at 2302 Commerce and Mrs. Tom Gladys whose address is 1516 Bragg Street.  If you have time in your schedule please attend this event and help us show appreciation to the World Changers with our attendance.

These houses will be power washed, scrapped down, boards replaced and painted at no cost to the owner.  Mrs. Hill will have her roof totally replaced and she is truly excited about her blessing because she has been waiting for a while.  It is a blessing when one learns how to just be patient and God will work everything out if it is within his will.

We are also thankful to have volunteers such as the World Changers which consist of volunteers who are teenagers and adults who are blessing our community with their talents, love and compassion toward mankind.
