A group of citizens got together at Heritage State Park in
Lawrence for the annual Fire Prevention Outreach Day of
Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Among them,
students from the Performing and Fine Arts High School, lead
by Professor Gerson Colon and Jeff Todd who teaches math in
the International High School.
“This year we were able to deliver 5,068 informational door
hangers to high fire risk neighborhoods in Lawrence,” said
Mr. Colon after they walked through the assigned area
placing door hangers with fire safety tips in English and
“This is the third year that I have done this service
project in Lawrence. I am a representative of Hope Worldwide
who partners with the American Red Cross for this and other
service projects,” concluded Mr. Colon.
