Who are We?
Holly Grove Community Development Corporation
The Holly Grove Community Development Corporation is a local non-profit created by the Holly Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Drew, Mississippi. The church purchased the Lil’ Red School in the 1990s with the hopes of restoring the building for use as a community center. The Holly Grove CDC is managed by a board of directors who are selected from a community-wide base of members.
