Review for Mandate Project Impact Inc, San Diego, CA, USA
The Southeast San Diego area in San Diego California has not been one of the greatest places to live in San Diego, however back in the day it was the place to be. Today, it is under going a great transformation with planned redevelopment being at the forefront of this change . Part of the redevelopment was to bring more positive African American cultural events and experiences. One of which is Jazz at the Creek. It is located in a central part of Southeast San Diego and is a cultural center for the community. Its tenants are non profits in the area. Downstairs is a great room where cultural breakfasts, business luncheons and beautiful galas are held. Across the way is the amount theater of sorts with stadium seating. This is where I first saw Mr Leonard Thompson. For a long time all of knew was he was the man that brought great jazz , gospel and events to San Diego. It wasn't until about a year ago that I got to meet Leonard, the man with a heart as big as San Diego. Leonard and u share a passion for helping people, but Leonard takes it to a new level. From the paid staff to volunteers to interns, Mandate Project Inc puts out a quality outdoor experience. No one walks away from a Jazz at the creek Concert or a Midway Gospel fest without talking about the quality of the artists. The professionalism it Leonard's team is amazing. Mandate Project Inc is bringing people and businesses of all walks of life, into a community that is once again going to be the place to be and Mandate Project is helping the community get there 1 event at a time. My employer supports Leonard and his endeavors because it is our way of giving back. I support MPI because they support our communities.
