Brian Lawrence is determined to change Camden’s negative image.
Lawrence, a minister at St. John Baptist Church, has helped organize a coat drive for the city’s less fortunate. But he wants Camden students to be the ones working the coat drive Saturday at St. John.
“Enhancing the power of youth,” and a “new appearance of Camden,” is Lawrence’s mission.
He has created a Facebook page: Camdens YEmpowering Change, to promote the effort and future events. Youths should sign up on the page if they are interested in volunteering in Saturday’s drive or future events.
