Everyone interested in the plight of those in our community who are experiencing homelessness is invited to join in “Take A Hungry Person to Lunch Day” on Thursday, November 19. This event provides a comfortable way for individuals from different walks of life to sit down together in fellowship and to get to know one another’s stories. Participants will meet at 10:30 am at the UU Church of Ventura at 5654 Ralston for an orientation before lunch.
“By signing up as a host, you’ll provide a welcome moment of connection for someone who is currently without shelter. Although homelessness is a complex issue, and each person has a unique story, spending time with someone who is homeless is a wonderful, moving way to learn more about the issue,” says Lift Up Your Voice Interim Director Sue Brinkmeyer.
This event is being held as part of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, which runs from November 14 to 22nd, and is sponsored by Lift Up Your Voice. For more information or to sign up to participate, contact Kathy Powell [email protected] or 910-8860 for details.
