Advocates to Line Orange Avenue for Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Day
150+ participants to wear purple, join in raising awareness
On Wednesday, Nov. 16, Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida will host its annual Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Day, inviting members of the community to wear purple, line Orange Avenue with signs, and spread the word about an issue facing so many in our community.
To participate, individuals can register here. The first 150 registered volunteers will receive a free Orlando Magic ticket for the game immediately following the conclusion of the event.
The Coalition is a place where hope is restored and lives are transformed. On any given night, the Coalition is “home” to an average of 600 homeless men, women and children. Community groups, office teams, friends and supporters are invited to join the Coalition in collectively helping to give visibility to this important community issue.
