When Rev. Alvin Carlisle took the reins of the Winston-Salem NAACP Branch late last year, he vowed to build a relationship between the organization and the community it serves. And last weekend he did just that when he invited residents to a membership drive and community day on Saturday, July 22. 

The event featured free food, vendors and free health screenings from the Winston-Salem State University Rams Know H.O.W. Mobile Unit.

Cancer Services Inc., United Health Centers, and Today’s Woman were also on hand during the event. Children enjoyed a bouncy house, games and other fun activities. While chatting during the event, Carlisle was all smiles as adults and children of all ages enjoyed the summer sun at the local NAACP headquarters on Oak Ridge Drive.

The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
