Hello My name is Charles Caine I'm the President and Executive Director of Brothers EMpowered and also proud resident of North Minneapolis. Although it may be a poverty and violent striking community, North Minneapolis is filled with so many riches. We're strong and resilient, self motivated and very creative. We also have some of the most talented young people in the nation. That is one of the many reasons I was inspired to create Brothers EMpowered, a non-profit organization that help to support and EMpower men and future men of color. One of our three major focus is Community Outreach, we believe in giving back to our community and making a major deference. We host a number of Community Outreach events each year like our Stop Youth Violence event our BACK TO SCHOOL POWER BACKPACK GIVEAWAY with free haircuts . We also give free turkeys during thanks giving as well as toys and gifts during the christmas holidays. Please help us as we help our community and supply our families with the tools they need to excel. Our up and coming event is our bike giveaway in november, last year we gave away 150 bike with helmet to support health and welness. We also will be hosting a thanksgiving dinner as well as christmas dinner this holiday season for the homeless and community members.
