The Christian Chamber Commerce of Western Pennsylvania will be holding an open forum tonight to discuss the purchase of the old Youth Development Center in New Castle.
The purchase of the former Youth Development Center has many community members, including government officials State Representative Bernstine, State Representative Sainato and Senator Vogel, concerned about the potential owners.
Hira Educational Services is a Muslim-based company who claims to aid in Muslim schooling but after reviewing the companies tax records and finance history, local government officials question the companies financial reliability and have asked Governor Tom Wolf to reconsider the sale.
The event will be hosted tonight June 23, at 6p.m. at KBN Studios, 2801 Wilmington Road in New Castle.
For those unable to attend, PA State Rep. Aaron Bernstine will be live-streaming the event on his Facebook page.
