Native Son Donates $25k to Union Springs

Residents in Union Springs celebrated their inaugural Family and Friends day at the Montgomery Street recreational park.

The event was from 1 to 3PM. Kids and families came out to get snow cones , play basketball , jump on the bouncy houses, and enjoy the music played by a local DJ.

Joseph Johnson , who grew up in Union Springs is now a successful entrepreneur and wanted to give something back to the community where he grew up.
Johnson gave a $25,000 donation to the city force development of youth projects and city needs.
Johnson says he hopes that this is the beginning of an annual event and his long-term vision is to rename the basketball court and park after a friend who  he grew up with and has since passed away.
