Child First/City Springs Door Knocking Day

Child First Community School Coordinator of City Springs Elementary/Middle School, Simone Garrison, organized an inspiring door knocking event on August 15th, 2013. The City Springs attendance team, along with the help of network staff and Child First community school coordinators and organizers, knocked on over four hundred doors.

They handed out packets of information on back to school dates and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's "Back to School Rally" this Saturday. In addition, the team was able to provide the community with resources to a variety of services including housing, food, health, mental health and more. It is the team's goal to continue community outreach through door knocking events as the year progresses
