Better-A-Block: Summer in Southcrest Community Carnival

The first Better-A-Block event of the year, “Summer in Southcrest Community Carnival,” was held June 8th. One San Diego partnered with AT&T, the San Diego Police Department Southeastern Division, Willie Henderson Sports Complex and Victory Outreach Church to host this popular block party.

Better-A-Block parties bring residents, community leaders, law enforcement and faith organizations together to collectively strengthen community relations, increase safety and instill pride in neighborhoods throughout San Diego.

About 2,500 people attended the event, which featured 30 on-site resource providers offering free educational programs for children and adults, affordable family health services and summer youth programs.

Also in attendance were Mayor Kevin Faulconer, First Lady Katherine Stuart Faulconer, Assistant Police Chief Terrance Charlot, City Council President Georgette Gomez and SDG&E President Scott Drury.
