Allied Community Co-op
The co-op ensures that information gets out to the community on news, events, and community meetings. This happens by the way of emails to agencies/organizations, door to door distribution, or setting up a building captain system. Various events include: Taste of Allied, food festivals, Allied Co-op meetings and the Back to School celebration. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Brotherhood Group is a unique, predominately black-led group of adolescent boys from the Allied Neighborhood who meet regularly to support each other and develop leadership skills. As one member states: “The Brotherhood gives us an alternative to being on the streets…our mission is to build a better relationship with each other and be productive. They have speakers, go on field trips, sponsor a neighborhood basketball tournament, read a common book, help at neighborhood association monthly meals, and other community activities. For more information, email email@example.com.
