WORCESTER, Mass. - A nonprofit in Worcester hosted a "Day of Hope" at local churches, and at the Belmont AME Zion Church this weekend.
An unscheduled event was one of the highlights of the day.
Teens and members of the Worcester Police Department decided to head to University Park for a pickup game of basketball. The police department has been making more outreach efforts by supporting community programs.
The Day of Hope event, put on by Hope for Worcester, brought free services including food, clothing and COVID-19 vaccines to four churches Saturday afternoon.
