Negative campaign ads getting on your nerves? As election season continues to work us up into a frenzy, its important to think about what each of us can do, in addition to voting, to support our country’s growth and development. We all have different perspectives on which are the best ways to move forward.
Perhaps one of the things we all can do is to find some time to give to our local communities.
Located in Splasm Software’s hometown, P.E.E.R, Inc. is an organization that supports its community. According to their website, PEER, Inc. “aims to empower a thriving, diverse community in the eastern area of Birmingham through resources for healthy living, learning, and working.”
They go on to explain how they are working to achieve this mission by saying, “We do this by connecting people to existing resources and creating new resources to meet needs in the areas of community health, economic development, and education. We aim to enrich the lives of those with limited resources and place special emphasis on children and seniors.” PEER has created five programs, including East Lake Farmer’s Market, Senior Market Baskets, Step Up After-School Enrichment Program, East Lake Community Kitchen, and Good HELP.
If you live in or near Birmingham, you can visit PEER Inc’s booth at the East Lake Farmer’s Market rain or shine until October 13th. Buy some delicious produce and learn more about this interesting organization.
