Hundreds attend 8th annual Mount Hope Drug Free celebration in Echo Park

(08/14/04) MOUNT HOPE - Hundreds of people came to Echo Park on Saturday for the 8th annual Drug Free celebration.

Bronx winners of Mount Hope's Drug Free contest showed off their artwork at the community event. But the contest was one of many activities at the celebration. Free blood pressure checks were given out as well as tips on keeping it at a normal level. There were also booths with literature to give Bronx residents more information about doctors and health care choices.

The Bronx event was sponsored by Mount Hope's Housing Company, a local organization founded in 1986.
