Rest In Solidarity 
Barry Blackstone
April 3, 1961- April 20, 2015

We would like to publicly offer our condolences to the family of Mr. Blackstone.  Barry was a wonderful person inside and out.  He was very active in transforming the North Memphis community, and would stop at nothing to get things done.  He was a great advocate and neighborhood friend.  He remains as an inspiration to OGOR and the North Memphis community.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

This summer, OGOR will be starting two big initiatives in the North Memphis area.
Our homeless outreach will include feeding and assisting the homeless in North Memphis with nutritious foods and toiletry supplies. We are asking for donations and physical volunteers to do the groundwork in July, September, and December.
Our North Memphis survey will require the help of volunteers to collect information by going door to door. The survey will last from July 18 to November 22.
