The Ross Foundation is calling for volunteers to help restore A&I Variety Meats & Produce 8939 E. 38th St. STE 20 on Saturday, February 9, 2019, from 10 am to 2 pm.

“A & I Variety Meats and Produce, a black-owned grocery store located off of 38th and Post Road, was vandalized and damaged a few weeks ago. I have put together a Community Action Day for February 9th from 10AM to 2PM, where I’m asking my Indianapolis community to come together to help paint, clean up, build signs, fix up any damages and vandalism, and help fundraise for Rober Hearst (the goal is $5000). The community will only respect and value the things they feel a part of. If they are apart of restoring this grocery store the people in the community will respect it more, take ownership and not allow anyone to damage it.” – Dee Ross, Founder of The Ross Foundation
