The North Charleston Police Department and local residents will come together Saturday for a community “fun day” centered around a game of baseball.
The event is planned for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Murray Hill Community Center baseball field, 2674 Bonds Ave., behind Murray Hill Academy. Families can partake in a home run derby, free throw competition, face painting and other activities.
Police said North Charleston resident Jamichell Mazyck conceived the event as a way to boost the relationship between officers and the community.
“I saw a need for us to work together and dispel any misconceptions about the community and police not being able to work together and exist together harmoniously,” Mazyck said in a release.
Attendees are invited to bring school supplies for area students.
