Congratulations to the Youth In Action Network group who had worked diligently over the last month to help collect items for the RSVP Program for their Project Homeless Connect/VA Stand Down campaign. The group had produced 36 bath towels, 80 wash cloths, 14 ladies socks and 59 men’s socks resulting in a total of 189 essential items for the local homeless community.
The major give away event will take place this Wednesday, October 5, from 8:30 AM to 2 PM at the Salvation Army campus located at 911 S. Brook Street in Louisville. This year’s campaign and overall event is being sponsored and promoted by the Robley Rex Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC), Louisville Metro Community Services, Coalition for the Homeless and the Salvation Army. So many volunteers and other community partners have helped RSVP with this important campaign and cannot be thanked enough for their compassion and gratitude towards an important issue/cause.
