Non-Violence Can Change History for All People
Soul Saving Revival Center (SSRC) recently blocked off the streets of Fillmore and Broadway to host their annual Community Day. “Our annual Community Day offered a wide range of volunteer opportunities for SSRC to work alongside community and other partners to help improve our city and neighborhoods,” said Senior Pastor of SSRC, Robert L. A. Robinson Jr.
“Every day, we take pride in our contribution to society. It helps us to address a range of community needs, from mentoring youth, voter registration & education, promoting progress and prosperity, and our annual Clothing and Thanksgiving Dinner giveaway.”
Elder Robert L. Robinson III added, “the enormous turnouts we have seen in prior years is a reflection on our church and its members and shows their sincere commitment to the communities we serve.” He continued that it’s important, especially now with all the violence erupting in the City of Buffalo.
“We must exercise our voice and be a pillar in the community to promote peace and non-violence and to encourage healthy decision-making, JesusChrist teachings and rallying people to reach their full potential, ” he said.
SSRC partnered with East Side Care, Raymond Brinson Voter Registration, EGRIU Construction, VOICE Buffalo and many more to host the event. Saturday was filled with food, drinks, games, dunk tanks, prizes and more.
Since their annual Thanksgiving Dinner Giveaway in 2005 and Community Day in 2017, SSRC volunteers recognize that small, daily actions done by individuals, combined with the actions of families, communities, and coalitions, come together to make up the larger, bold movement of prevention.
“Although there might be differences in cultures, classes and ages we want to help in fostering intercultural and interfaith dialogue, building bridges of communication, understanding, and countering stereotyping through non-violence and the 24th raised awareness so that everyone can be champions for prevention,” concluded Senior Pastor Robinson
