"We can't help everyone but everyone can help someone." - Ronald Regan
Homelessness across our nation continues to rise at an alarming rate. Right here in our community in Tallahassee, Florida, on just about every major street you go down, you can spot a homeless person. In my effort to be a part of the solution to this problem, I hosted a 'Backpack for the Homeless Service' Day as a part of my birthday celebration weekend last year. We filled 100 backpacks with necessities and touched every side of our city (north, south, east, and west). The goal was to impact 100 homeless lives in one day. Thanks to community partners, sponsors, and volunteers, we were able to reach our goal. No, we weren't able to give them homes but we were able to show them that we care and let them know we have their backs. This year, we're doing it again, with the goal of having an even greater impact! I hope that you will konnect with me and let's be the "everyone's" who helps someone...our homeless need us!
