NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Newhallville men cooked up pancakes for kids in their neighborhood.
They wanted to make sure children who rely on the Lincoln Bassett Elementary School Summer Meal Program were fed on the weekends.
But in light of recent events, organizers say it gave them a chance to connect.
“It gives us a chance to build with our young people and engage with them and find out where they at and we can help them navigate through whatever struggle they think they going through alone and we want to let them know that they’re not alone. We’re out here with you.,” said Maurice Peters.
Peters adds he would like to invite local police officers to join them next weekend, and plans for this to be a weekly event.
