PITTSBURGH, PA, October 20, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On Good Friday, A+ Schools and I Dream A World coordinated the delivery of 400 meals to AHRCO Northside families. Without hesitation, Melvin Brown, Maintenance Supervisor, volunteered to come in on his day off to be an integral part of the project. "None of AHRCO's efforts would be possible without the steadfast support of our staff."
"We really want to make sure that our residents are aware of what they can do to combat this virus," Lara Washington said. "That is why it's really important for us to get that information out."
All of this has been made possible by I Dream A World, a nonprofit funded by AHRCO and founded in 2015 to try and bridge the gap between AHRCO's residents and the resources that are available to them.
"We have really been impacted very deeply, I mean, both physically and economically but also emotionally and I don't think that's surprising either that our African American communities in the city are being hit very hard," Washington said. "It is a role that AHRCO and I Dream A World is happy to play in trying to bridge that gap between resources that are available and people who really, really need it."
