RENE G. HALEY INITIATIVE EVENTS
A SIDELINE CHAT
The Rene G. Haley Initiative invited the Haley Village to an exclusive speaking engagement with a leader in our community, a friend and donor, Willie K Goode.
Mr. Goode is the President and CEO of the GCI/Goode Companies, Inc., one of the Mid-Atlantic region's largest privately held waste management and transportation companies. In 1991, Willie decided to lease a truck and start his own business; one truck, a belief in self, a spirit of entrepreneurship, and a strong vision, GCI/Goode Companies, Inc. was established. Today, the company has over 170 trucks serving 125,000 residents and 11,000 commercial customer stops supported by 350 employees.
Mr. Goode gave the group an up close and personal tour of his headquarters here in Prince George’s County, as well as tips and words to live by as an entrepreneur. Below, we have included a few takeaways from “The Huddle”…a sideline chat, with Willie K. Goode. Stay tuned for more programs sponsored by RGHI.
CHRISTMAS TOY DRIVE
This past December, the Rene G. Haley Initiative celebrated one year of accomplishments in honor of Rene Haley. In the spirit of the holiday season, we asked guests to bring a new toy donation for children aged 6-12, and they really showed up and showed out. Our contribution of over 150 toys was presented to the Boys and Girls Club of Prince George's County. The RGHI also debuted its first merchandise order, long sleeve and short sleeve graphic t-shirts designed by Brenden Bazilio. We thank all those who attended and continue to support the RGHI.
Thank you again for making this another meaningful and successful event.

THE VILLAGE WATTS SUMMER BASKETBALL LEAGUE
The primary purpose of the Watts Summer Basketball League is to offer adults (18+) an opportunity to participate and enjoy a recreational sport, basketball and experience it in a healthy competitive environment.
The emphasis is on participation, character development, good sportsmanship, and competitive fun.
Special thanks to Nate Goldsmith and Lance Ross for forming a basketball team made up of Rene's peers to compete this past summer. Check out The Village!
