Community groups to rally for the homeless April 22
Community service groups from Ocean County will join together to sponsor a festival and rally in support of the county’s homeless Sunday, April 22 at 12:30 p.m.
The event will present educational forums for the homeless, their supporters, and government officials; networking opportunities for the homeless and those who advocate for them; and a simple meal.
Other activities will include health screenings, grooming stations, voter registration, musical entertainment and a time to recognize the groups who have helped the homeless in the past.
The four-hour event will be held in Lakewood’s town center on Clifton Avenue, between Third and Fourth streets. It will conclude with a discussion of ending homelessness as a social justice issue and a Q&A session with the homeless and public participating.
Volunteers from many local groups will staff the event.
Government leaders will be invited to participate.
The public is invited to attend this event free of charge.
