This is a unique way to help support a cause that is near & dear to everyone in Chicago- helping to put an end to the senseless gun violence which has destroyed so many lives & torn apart families.”

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reed Construction and the Reed Construction Foundation have been long time supporters of Project H.O.O.D., which was founded by Executive Director Pastor Corey B. Brooks.

In 2011, Pastor Brooks spent 94 days on the roof of a dilapidated motel that embodied the neglect, crime, and violence of Chicago’s Woodlawn community. While on the rooftop, he conceived Project H.O.O.D. with the mission of stopping senseless violence and raising the community out of poverty. He raised enough money to buy and demolish the motel and to date, Project H.O.O.D. has served tens of thousands of people.

Flash forward 10 years. In that time, Project H.O.O.D. has established a proven track record of stopping violence before it starts, with the support of corporate partners like Reed Construction, and collaborating with charitable organizations such as Reed Construction Foundation. As dedicated partners, Reed helps provide job training and certification, entrepreneurial resources, and other programs to change the economic status of at-risk youth and individuals.

A new facility to house all Project H.O.O.D.’s expanding programs would increase impact and help reach the neediest. This year, on the 10th anniversary of that first “Tent-A-Thon” in 2011, Pastor Brooks has invited a host of CEOs, leaders, community stakeholders, and celebrities to join Pastor Brooks as they commit to spending at least one night on the roof. The outdoor campout has been constructed on top of a replica of Project H.O.O.D.’s new community center, the Leadership and Economic Opportunity Center, at 6615 S. King Drive, Chicago, IL 60637.

Reed Construction’s own William T. Birck, CEO, and Patrick Green, Business Development Manager, will be lending support, joining Pastor Brook and his team early today, and staying through the night in a tent set up on the rooftop.

“This is a unique way to help support a cause that is near and dear to everyone in Chicago- helping to put an end to the senseless gun violence which has destroyed so many lives and torn apart families,” notes CEO Birck. “I have personally invited many CEO partners to help lend their support to this cause and join Pastor Brooks and myself on the rooftop!”

Mr. Birck’s rooftop stay and highlights of other guests and supporters can be followed via Project H.O.O.D.’s live stream and on NBC Chicago TV and Facebook.
