Go For It
Curtis Holloway is on the front lines of the homeless dilemma, in that grey-space leading up to subsidized housing. He and his group of volunteers, make regular visits inside Doreen’s Place and form relationships with the men who are trying to get their lives in order. If you have not read the blog about his work at Bud Clark Commons, you should check it out; it will make you want to help. He is doing what all of us should be doing, spending the face-time necessary to help our Unlucky Citizens. The rest of us, those that know we should serve our community more in our busy lives, would love to be inside cooking these meals with him. But at least here is a way to send him some him some love and support. Were you to decide to buy a single dinner for the 70 or so men at Doreen’s place, that costs Curtis about $200, or four times this $50 donation. We at DesignDeliverables say to him: “go for it man, you are doing awesome work.”READ THE BLOG ARTICLE
