Today is our Founder’s Mom’s birthday. Muriel Pipkins passed away from breast cancer in 2003. From her passing our Founder took his mom’s initials and dedicated a mentoring program to help at risk youth in our community. The mentoring program is Mentoring Positives. MP was dedicated to honor Muriel and give back as she often did in her most caring ways. Today the Darbo community held a surprise celebration in Muriel’s honor. We can’t express how much we appreciated the effort of pulling this special surprise off today. Here are some pictures of the candle light vigil and releasing of balloons. We appreciate you China-e Williamson and all who was involved.
The new school year will be here soon. We want kids to experience the best possible star, t to a positive school year. Please join us for a Peace Walk on August 22nd in Darbo Worthington Park. Please save the date and join us. The youth in Mentoring Positives will be organizing the walk so if your interested in helping out or being a sponsor please contact us.
It is a pleasure and honor to work with our neighborhood officer Lester Moore. Lester is the model of community policing. He builds true relationships in the Darbo neighborhood and has earned a lot of trust from the residents living there. It was quite an experience participating in the simulated police training scenario. Mentoring Positives would like to thank Lester and MPD East District for the write up.
