Homeless Committee Charity Fund Raiser Funds Reach $6500 and Continues Upward

Homeless Committee of the Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) reported last week that their concert fund raiser had raised $5000 to benefit Miracle Messages, St. Joseph Center, and Safe Place for Youth (SPY), and according to Will Hawkins, chair of the committee, donations kept coming in. Now they have collected $6500 and Hawkins says money is still coming.

“First and foremost these funds are for operational costs of the program and benefit concert,” said Hawkins. “The remainder is set aside for transportation costs for those individuals leaving the streets and going home to their loved ones.

“We executed at the beach before the concert as well as on the streets and alleys. For now the program in Venice is complete, although we look to do follow up in January.”
