This week, Derby United is proud to begin a partnership SD Hip Hop 5k to amplify their good works in the community. The organization, San Diego Hip Hop Health & Wellness 5K/ Festival, launched in 2015 to encourage southeastern San Diego residents of all generations to commit to fitness, health and resource awareness. During this time more than ever, our community needs support. SD Hip Hop 5k has partnered with additional community organizations to distribute, groceries, meals and PPE to the local residents.
In an event sponsored by Assemblymember Dr. Shirley N Weber of District 79, Derby United members and friends joined local organizations at Mt. Erie Baptist Church on 47th Street in the Encanto neighborhood of San Diego, handing out donated groceries to local residents. Participating volunteers unloaded truckloads of food, bagged groceries, greeted residents, distributed and aided in event clean up and breakdown.
As a newer addition to the Southeast community, Derby United commits itself to being a force for support, progress and systemic change in Encanto. Join Derby United members at the next meal service they will be attending.
