ST. PETERSBURG – Leon Thomas III, the new owner of Creal Funeral Home, has a passion for helping economically disadvantaged youth. He is making a conscious effort to partner with various organizations on the south side of St. Petersburg in order to thank African-American families for 60 years of loyal support to Creal Funeral Home.
This Sat., April 4, Thomas is inviting Jordan Park’s young residents to take part in the fun Spring Scavenger Egg Hunt, sponsored by Creal. Additional community partners are Pastor Fred Hinton and the Keep It Real children’s mentoring program, Jordan Park, The Next Stepp Pregnancy Center and Urban Exposure, Inc.
Pastor Hinton will lead the children in a self-exploration exercise to help them improve self-esteem, build confidence and respect themselves and others. He will kick off with a brief synopsis of the mentoring program. Please meet him in the main office (in Jordan Park) at 10 a.m. sharp. The entire program will last only 20 minutes, and then it’s time to go hunt for decorated eggs, candy, play games and color.
All children who are currently residents in Jordan Park are invited with their parents to attend the scavenger egg hunt. There will be contest and prizes and it’s all free! Bring the children out to hear about the Keep It Real mentoring program.
For more information please call Tanashia Whiting of Jordan Park at (727) 322-9327. See you there on Saturday. Baskets and bags to collect the eggs, candy and other goodies in will be provided. We just need for you and your children to show up at 10 a.m. and have a good time.
