March 25 Meeting: Commissioner Allen Booker, Amenities Kits for Homeless

Thanks so much to all, who attended the Glynn Dems March Community meeting March 25.  It was diverse, engaging, and interactive, with the highlights being: our keynote speaker, Commissioner Allen Booker. Many thanks to him, for leading a lively, thought-provoking Q&A; and compiling amenities kits for the ‘unsheltered homeless community,’ distributed by the charity, Gateway, through its Street Outreach Homeless Assistance Program. Many thanks to those, who donated travel-sized toiletries.

It was a great evening!

PLEASE NOTE: The April community meeting will take place April 29 (the fifth Monday of the month) because of Easter Monday.
We look forward to seeing you there!
