To help spread the word about what can be done to help end poverty in Oakland County, the Pathway to Self-Sustainability meeting is being held on Tuesday, Oct. 15, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The meeting is in the gym of St. James Catholic Church, located at 241 Pearson St., Ferndale, Mich., 48220 (west side of Woodward, south of 9 Mile). There is no cost to attend the meeting. Light refreshments will be served.
“The Pathway to Self-Sustainability is an all-volunteer, interfaith and community project,” says Susan Masiak, spokesperson for the project. “We study the things that keep people in Oakland County trapped in poverty. We find and develop services that successfully help them get out of poverty. Forever.
“Poverty hurts everyone,” notes Masiak. “Our community belongs to all of us and needs each of us to help end poverty. Enough frustration watching the news; you can make a difference. Come and see.”
RSVPs for the meeting are much appreciated, but not required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or call 248.705.8868 to RSVP or for more information.
