Trees Removed, Grounds Cleared, Waiting On AEP But Registration & Practices Begin
Thanks to Allah SWT for warmer weather, amazing allies like Columbus City Councilmember Elizabeth Brown and our Soccer Program Chair, Russ Harris, the Wedgewood soccer field is almost ready and the registration has begun, Starting this week, we will be present on the field every day.
On March 31st, we had a blast. Besides some factual mistakes. ABC 6 News did a decent coverage of the event. Please check it out, but remembers that MY Project USA was not started two years ago in response to the shootings and homicides in Wedgewood, instead we started in 2015 and had adopted Wedgewood as our pilot neighborhood from the very beginning. Also Sr. Zerqa Abid is not a resident at the Wedgewood, but she sure does spend a lot of time there and has literally become a mom-figure to many kids in that community. She thinks it is actually cool that the reporters couldn't distinguish that. It speaks volumes about the integrity and depth of our work in Wedgewood. Last but not least, we are not claiming that the drugs are gone. Instead the drugs, crimes and violence have gone down. We love the incredible story of Wedgewood.
We need help with food and labor. Please sign up now. As always, you can also help My Project USA continue to serve the Wedgewood community by Donating Online at MYProjectUSA.org
