Busy BeeLievers All Summer Long

The BeeLievers BeeYond the Stars youth group and BeeLievers Neighborhood House have been truly busy this summer making their neighborhood around 4th and Keefe a better place to be. In fact they held numerous meetings and events including neighborhood clean-ups, youth events, community walks, garden planting days and last but not least, block parties! Safe & Sound staff like Kati and Al help organize the efforts and are typically on hand to help out, but these days the BeeLievers have it well under control. Tehanna Robinson is the founder and CEO and she has worked wonders for the neighborhood together with area youth and adults. It’s just fun to stop by and enjoy the festivities organized by the committed people who have joined together over the years.

One recent event was a block party held at the end of August. Over 100 neighborhood residents and volunteers showed up to pitch in, clean-up, grill out and have a great time. There was music, games, school supplies, food and even free used clothes for those in need. It is really hard to believe that only a few years ago the corner of 4th and Keefe was a block party of a different kind where drugs and gangs were the norm. That is not the case now and ever since the streets were cleared of drug dealers and gang members the summers have been a time of year for everyone to enjoy rather than dread. You can believe it!
