On Saturday, August 11th The 23 Zone is ready to once again give back to the community when the next “Feed the Block, the Back to School Edition” gets underway with free food, fun and other things to help children and people in the community.
“This is a great event that brings together local businesses, community volunteers and young people to help grow a spirit of help and concern for the people of the neighborhood,” says President David James (D-6).
The 23 Zone, located at 2621 4th Street, is no stranger to hosting “Feed the Block”. This is the store’s eleventh cookout since it opened. The purpose is a simple one; many of the store’s customers want to give back to the community.
A wide range of volunteers from local youth sports and activity groups are giving of their time at the event. The store’s location is in an area that has dealt with drugs and the less fortunate who sometimes go hungry.
In addition to food, The 23 Zone has donated shoes and clothes in the past to people in need that attend the cookout. This year, there is a back to school donation drive to help low income families and needy children get a good start to the school year.
“We are truly fortunate to have The 23 Zone and dedicated volunteers help our community,” says President James. “So if you are in need, please come. If you want to give your time and help out, you can come too.”
“Feed the Block, the Back to School Edition” gets under way at 1:00pm and goes until the food runs out. The event is hosted Kentucky Ambition AAU and Kourtesy’s Kupcakes. It is sponsored by Booth and Son Concrete & JiggaMCC Entertainment.
