The Hadiya Pendleton Foundation received a gift from City Hall just three weeks before the one-year anniversary of its namesake’s murder.

The city agreed to lease two unused offices in the Martin Luther King Community Center to the foundation for just a dollar.

The foundation will provide mentoring, tutoring, and recreation programs for young people after school.

Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed last year at a park less than a mile from President Obama`s Kenwood home.
