Police and Ministry continue partnership to improve community
Several City of Hartsville departments in partnership with the Ministerial Alliance are continuing efforts to improve the community through the EMPOWER initiative (Employing Ministry and Police to Overcome Walls and End Racism). This effort is a partnership between the Ministerial Alliance, Community Outreach Division of the Hartsville Police Department, and the City of Hartsville to unite in making a positive impact in the community.
Two community workdays have been scheduled for improving two abandoned residences. On Feb. 25, team members and volunteers will meet at 515 S. 6th St. to board up windows and clear debris as necessary. On March 25, members and volunteers will meet at 320 Bell Ave. for landscaping and minor exterior repairs. Pastor Christopher Morgan, head of the Ministerial Alliance, will be coordinating clergy and congregation members.
