The Ujima Community Development Corporation held “Bingo for a Cause” on Thursday, Dec. 5 at The Enterprise Center, 1922 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, where it is headquartered.
The community-based nonprofit corporation was established primarily to carry out and support social and economic development activities designed to improve the quality of life in the community. The bingo event was part of a series of fundraising events the CDC is hosting to generate funds and interest for its goal to build a senior citizens’ living complex.
The proposed five-star senior housing and retirement village will include a two-story complex with 28-units, 11 duplex structures and a community center for the use of residents of the complex and surrounding community. The 8.5 acre development site is located off Old Greensboro Road, on Barbara Jane Avenue and Woodrow Powell Drive.
The CDC was started in 2007 “to carry out and support social and economic development activities and preserve the health, safety and well-being of under served senior residents of the City View community in northeastern Winston-Salem.”
