“Helping transform the community”

“It’s about helping transform the community,” said Reverend Jerome Anderson, pastor of Unity Fellowship community church in Orangeburg.

Anderson refers not only to the monthly meetings he and other Orangeburg leaders hold, but to the actions resulting from those meetings. One of the purposes of the meetings is for community members and leaders to take action that will eliminate crime.

At 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27, the community is invited to the second in a series of monthly meetings.

The reunion, sponsored by Community Action Partners, will take place at the Orangeburg City Gym, located at 410 Broughton St.

The meeting will include presentations from Orangeburg Department of Public Safety Director Charles Austin and Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, Anderson said.

Hayward R. Jean, Director of Student Services for the Orangeburg County School District, will also provide an update on the One Child, One Chance Mentoring Program he discussed at the previous community meeting held last month.

Anderson said meeting organizers established six community transformation tenants.

Last month, the community meeting focused on how supporting education can help reduce crime.

Tuesday’s meeting will hear from law enforcement.

Anderson said next month’s meeting will focus on mental health.

In the months that follow, members of the community will hear discussions from leaders in business, politics and faith.

Meetings are open to the public.
