The Southtown 9.12 Project Chicago wants to change that, and the group is inviting the community to box up collected items to be sent overseas.
Organizer Lucie Weir was in our ABC7 studio to tell viewers about this event.
The SouthTown 9.12 Project Chicago is a volunteer-based, non-partisan movement, located in the Chicago neighborhoods of Bridgeport and Canaryville. It focuses on building and uniting our communities back to the place we were on 9/12/2001.
