Bengals volunteer to upgrade CityLink Center

Posted: Updated:
WEST END, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Bengals players, along with United Way of Greater Cincinnati and volunteers from the Marvin Lewis Community Fund are working to upgrade the CityLink Center.

Volunteers are building a new outdoor playground and indoor playroom. These facilities will give children and families a safe environment to play and be active.

Volunteers also will construct a community garden for families to not only learn how to grow fresh fruit and vegetables, but also how to prepare and cook what they grow, promoting a healthier lifestyle. Outdoor space will be improved with extensive landscaping, native trees, shrubs, flowers and fencing.

CityLink Center, on Bank Street in the West End, is a place where individuals go to one place and are surrounded by one team and find an integrated, holistic path to break free from poverty and get to a place of self-sustainability and hope.
