OYC ensures no child goes to bed hungry

Richard Yulman, Alonzo Mourning fund new dinner program 

The Overtown Youth Center [OYC] has become a guarded sanctuary for hundreds of children in its community. With its large, colorful and extra-personable staff, its no wonder that such an amazing initiative has conjured up to ensure that no child goes home hungry.  Richard Yulman and former Miami Heat basketball star, Alonzo Mourning, launched OYC’s new Dinner Program to benefit students at the center. Yulman is the retired co-chair and owner of Serta International.  “It’s a very disturbing thought to think that children go to bed without a meal; we have so much here in abundance to make sure they don’t go without,” Mourning said.
