LAMP will conduct a vigil for the homeless tonight, December 21 at 6:00 PM on the steps of the Lowndes Social Service building at 601 North Lee Street. Matt McMurray is the contact person, firstname.lastname@example.org . Matt has recently returned from a trip around the country during which he assumed the role of a homeless person in several cities to see how services were being provided in other places.
Participants may bring donations of food or clothing for the area's poor persons. Hats, coats, and gloves would be particularly appreciated as the Christmas weekend weather is predicted to be near or below freezing.
For other information about the issues of persons facing homelessness in this area due to job loss, illness and other stressors, contact Diane West of the South Georgia Partnership to End Homelessness, 229-293-7301, ext 6, email@example.com.
