Frayser, TN-- LifeLine to Success, Inc., a reentry program based in the community of Frayser is excited to announce the 3rd Annual PEACE Walk. The walk was created to spread the word about safer streets, schools and households. In addition, introduce a growing and beautiful community of Frayser. The annual PEACE walk is scheduled for Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 1647 Dellwood Avenue; the LifeLine office. Registration 8 am. Food and fun after the walk .
Since 2009, LifeLine to Success has focused on changing the mind-set of men and women that are coming home from prison. The programs vision is to support the team members seek their purpose and create goals; we believe everyone is a success. And this shows to be true in the work the team members do to support Shelby County. They spend over 144 classroom hours in a life skills class that deals with the issues of the culture. Over 250 hours of community service is performed in the communities, with the Frayser Exchange Club, ASD Schools, Mid-South Food bank and other organizations. The teams learn job skills by becoming a member of the BLIGHT PATROL, who mitigates blighted properties in Shelby County (focused on Frayser). The BLIGHT PATROL does not only cut the grass; these men and women make sure the empty lot or abandon home looks as presentable as they can by trimming, edging and bagging debris.
The walk is another way LifeLine to Success members are giving back. Come out and walk with us to support a growing community and celebrate the life of Mrs. Palumbo-Jones. Domestic Violence took this young Kindergarten Frayser Achievement Elementary School teacher from us too soon. Her heart was to build up the student and show them the beauty of life. Her days started with affirmations that encouraged not only the students but the staff and community partners that worked with her.
The walk is free; we are asking for donations that will support the maintenance for Ms. Palumbo Jones’ memorial garden located at the school created by the students. In addition, the proceeds will be used to create two community gardens that students will maintain and have vegetables for families in need.
To register for the walk, send donations, or for more information call 901.729.6537 and ask or Caron.
