StrongStart reading program


Dear NPU-T,

The Morehouse College Community Revitalization Initiative (MCCRI) is excited to initiate our StrongStart reading program in Fulton County of Atlanta, GA, and we are looking for book donations! Our mission is “to inspire and secure the future of Atlanta’s youth through literacy and mentorship.” To accomplish this mission, we have been recruiting volunteer mentors to read to students who are in grades 1-3 at the targeted four schools, KIPP WAYS, KIPP STRIVE, Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy, and M. Agnes Jones. We are planning to initiate StrongStart at M. Agnes Jones on January 26th, 2017.

We are encouraging potential donors to donate by January 20th, 2017, however, we welcome donations year-round. The types of books we need are Kindergarten through third grade level picture/story books that are new or gently used.

We thank you for your consideration, and we hope that you will join us in reaching our literacy goals for the children in this community.

Please contact the MCCRI at 404-215-2673 or send an email to for more information about our program or to donate books.

Warm regards,

The Morehouse College Community Revitalization Initiative

West End and Westview Join with the Beltline to Present a Day of Celebration: DEC 12th

This year West End and Westview have teamed up to bring you a grand day of celebrations and activities to kick off the holiday season. All events are open to the general public. If you haven’t ever ventured out to the Westside of Atlanta this is your chance to GO WEST!

The day will benefit The Atlanta BeltLine, which is a $2.8 billion redevelopment project that will shape the way Atlanta grows over the next 25 years and beyond. The project proposes a network of public parks, multi-use trails and transit along a historic railroad corridor circling downtown and connecting many neighborhoods directly to each other by streetcar or light rail.


9:30am – 5K Walk-A-Thon Benefit for KIPP STRIVE Academy: Rain or shine. Get your legs on; get your exercise before the parties later. 5K = three miles and takes about one hour. Meet at KIPP STRIVE, 1444 Lucile Avenue – the former JC Harris Elementary School in Westview. To register for the walk or to help with planning please contact Scott Shepherd.

12:00pm – BeltLine Trail Ground Breaking Ceremony: Meet at Muse Street and Lucile Avenue at high noon to celebrate the ground breaking for the next leg of the BeltLine Trail. Once complete, the trail will connect Rose Circle Park with the Westview Cemetery and add more green space to the community. Free giveaways from the BeltLine. Walk-A-Thon ends at the ground breaking site. For more information or to help with planning please contact Patrick Berry.

12:15pm – Westview Holiday Party at Fire Station Number 17: Immediately after the Beltline Ground Breaking Ceremony join the Westview Community Organization and the firefighters for a traditional holiday lunch at Fire Station 17, 1489 R.D. Abernathy Boulevard. Please bring a dish to share. For more information or to help with planning please contact Ayana Gabriel. 

7:00-11:00pm – Cocktail Party and Hord’Oeuvres at the Hammonds House: Join West End, Westview & West End Merchants Coalition for a Gala to celebrate our historic shared past, our delightful present and our fantastic future. To our resident guests, please reach out to friends in other neighborhoods that are looking to live in or buy in our neighborhood. The holiday party will be a great introduction to the area by meeting our greatest asset: our friends and neighbors. The party is pot luck Hor d’Oeuvres with live music. In lieu of a dish, a small donation is suggested. This is a benefit for the community. For more information or to help with planning please contact Carl Nes.
