Summer Issue

This Summer Issue features four profiles of community members. We take this opportunity each year to offer this special profile series, which expands on The Stand’s regular “Achiever” feature.

The Stand is all about people who are contributing to the South Side community. If you have a nomination for our regular “Achiever” profile, please let us know.

Our reporters also spoke with HOPE for Bereaved, a center offering support to individuals and families suffering through the loss of a loved one; explain the newly developed Land Bank, and highlight some of the winners of the  Afro-Academic Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics.

The 27th issue is available throughout the South Side at our various drop locations. If you need a copy, contact Ashley Kang to request your business or location become a new drop site or stop by the South Side Communication Center located at 2331 S. Salina St. during public hours (3 to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday) to pick up additional copies.
