Sanders To Dish-Out Breakfast And Urge Responsibility
Councilman James Sanders Jr. will host a Men's Breakfast on Saturday, September 22 at Macedonia Baptist Church, located at 330 Beach 67 Street in Arverne. The breakfast will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and end at 11 a.m.
In an effort to increase responsibility among men in the Far Rockaway community, Sanders has called on men of all ages to come out and discuss issues affecting them, such as jobs, family and health.
"For too long the women of our community have had to carry the mantle of responsibility for our men. Now is the time that we fairly distribute the mantle of responsibility. I am urging all men to come out not just to eat a good meal, but to take back our community as well," said Sanders.
Among the sponsors that will participate to address the needs of men in the community are the Rockaway Development and Revitalization Corporation, Ocean Bay Development Corporation and Citizens Against Recidivism.
