Black Expo Shows Love to Charleston Promise Neighborhood
The Charleston Promise Neighborhood is hard at work–and people are taking notice. Even though the community in South Carolina did not receive a planning grant from the Department of Education in 2010, they’re finding other sources of funding and ways to stay connected.
The Charleston Black Expo showcased a Charleston Promise Neighborhood booth and banner, and made the Promise Neighborhood the charitable beneficiary of the Annual Black Expo Golf Tournament–to the tune of $1500!
Members of the Charleston Promise Neighborhood presented at the Expo, and Promise Neighborhood CEO Dwayne Green has been speaking at a number of community events since.
It’s inspiring to see so much action, so keep it up, Charleston!
