The Neighborhood Hero Initiative will bring people from marginalized communities together alongside our neighborhood heroes - Physicians, Teachers, Sanitation workers, and Fire Fighters to participate in a Professional and Entertainment aspects of the project. The event will bring attention and recognition to heroes.
HOOD Organization would love the community to join us as we host our first “Neighborhood Hero Basketball Tournament”. Not only does the NHBT allows individuals within marginalized communities to build bonds with Neighborhood Heroes, it also gives these heroes the recognition that they deserve for what they do on a daily basis. The NHI will also show the youth that they can become just like these Neighborhood heroes in the future. This event will take place on Saturday, June 26th in Nelson Park.
