On Saturday, August 5th, 2017 F.F.U.N. will host its 14th Annual “Stop the Killing” Back to School community wide initiative. This year we'll be at the Whitehaven Community Center located at 4318 Graceland Drive Memphis, TN 38116. The hours of the event will be between 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. We strongly believe that “Education is the Key to keep our youth Free” and community wide events like this is one way to help at-risk youth stay in school, deter them from crime and negative behavior, and create safer communities.
Since we started this effort 14 years ago, we’ve been successful in positively impacting the local community – especially our at-risk youth and young adults as follows:
a) an increased need for Pre-K through 2nd grade level school supplies,
b) more school supply drives and back to school initiatives in at-risk communities,
c) increased awareness about the importance of education,
d) Channel 13 who was our primary media outlet for promoting this initiative have their school supply drive for a second year,
e) an increase in small business owners trying to affect change by hosting “stop the killing” initiatives at their place of business, and
f) an increase in young vocalist singing “clean music” (without vulgar and violent lyrics).
