“Reach one, keep one...,” is the motto of Relief From the Streets Inc.’s first banquet and award ceremony. The organization strives to make an impact on young men in the community by setting a positive example.
Rico Walker, the executive director of Relief From The Streets Inc., said, “This is about showing the community the hard work the young men have done this year. Through the presentation, we will show pictures of where we’ve been and what we have achieved.”
After being released from federal prison in 2010, Walker made it his goal in life to make sure young men make positive choices. He runs Relief From the Streets Inc. and takes the young men on field trips, gives his testimony, lectures and community service activities.
“I want to show the kids we can achieve something together and that their work will never be in vain,” Walker said.
As the young men and Walker strive for success, they are asking for the community’s support with their first annual banquet and awards ceremony.
“These young men are striving for success and need support. They work hard for these field trips and community service activities. Donations are appreciated and tickets for our event can be purchased at the door the night of the event,” said Walker.
The event will be at 6 p.m. Saturday at The Plaza Restuarant.
