When communities show up: The Church Hill and Fairmount House

If you missed it, the Church Hill and Fairmount Senior Citizen house had no air conditioning in one of the hottest days of the summer so far. A call to action by Maurice Tyler on Facebook started a show of community that really makes you love this neighborhood. From the moment the post was up, several neighbors propelled into action with water, fans, coolers and ice. The community’s AC is back on.

Maurice Tyler writes:

I Sitting here thinking all choked up and tearing up thinking about how the community, the people and social media CAME to the rescue of the less fortunate. The inbox message and the Facebook post just melted my heart They want us to believe that one group hate the other group they to do like that one because he hate your kind. I find that they are lying to us, I realize that the big picture is separation, I realize that we the community’s in every city and every state are being played like a big game of divide and conquer. Trust me when I say the community showed up for CHURCHILL yesterday and there are people who’s day is a lot better because of it, As humans and people of moral base we must understand we are different because no two beings are alike not even twins and understanding that we are different and focusing on our similarities we can move forward and grow as a community. Once again thanks everybody and promise a big cookout to celebrate this day.

This should have been Posted on CHPN. This is worthy of neighborhood news, not just lost dogs, cats, and what is the proper word to call criminals!

This was a good deed. I have a very close friend of mine who lives in the Fairmont house, and I visited him a few weeks ago. I felt sorry for him because he only had a small fan to help him keep cool. This was a great deed to help out the less fortunate.

In the end this is also why a lot of us need you here at CHPN because we’re not going to be on Facebook reading posts from people starting negative stuff and dividing us. The only world I need to know is the one that takes care of itself and calls on all of us to get it done.

I lived in this highrise for 4years and I recently had no choice but to move out in February of this year to another Winn owned property. And I have family and friends that are still in that building. You want to be a community, stand up for the elderly and disabled that are in that building! Not all of them are there because they where disabled forever. I’ve worked my whole life and got sick 6 years back, I had no choice but to live there. That building isn’t fit for rats.
