Marcus Garvey Apartments Resource Fair

While brainstorming solutions to some of the issues in their community, the young people of Marcus Garvey Apartments knew that holding a Resource Fair would allow residents to be well informed of opportunities and resources available to them. When planning the Resource Fair, the young people thought long and hard about ways to make a Resource Fair attractive for every age. With perfect timing, a holiday themed Resource Fair was well underway. 

In December, BCJC staff, Marcus Garvey Justice Community members along with a host of partner organizations filled the Betsy Head Gymnasium to throw the first ever Marcus Garvey Resource Fair with a holiday flair. Partner organizations in attendance were: Made in Brownsville, Brownsville Partnership, Legal Hand & the Melting Pot. Over 100 MGA adults and children were in attendance. Residents danced, took pictures with Santa Claus, decorated Christmas ornaments, enjoyed a community meal, and participated in a raffle.
