Core Community Weekend Tells The Poverty Story

Bond County Core Community is in existence to provide assistance to local residents in poverty. The organization is sponsoring an Understanding Poverty event Friday through Sunday.

This weekend, Core Community is presenting several programs to allow others citizens to learn about and experience poverty. Four events are scheduled, beginning Friday evening and going through Sunday afternoon.

Core Community spokesperson Lisa Barber said it’s similar to a weekend event held in 2019 when the program was launched. The simulation Friday will take a person through a month’s experience of living in poverty. It will be from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Greenville First United Methodist Church
