Last September, Memphis hosted its first Project Homeless Connect event. Here are some of the numbers . . .
- 964 homeless individuals
- 1090 volunteers
- 271 housing applications
- 297 dental screenings
- 145 haircuts
- 97 legal consultations
These are great numbers. It was an amazing day and a testament to the spirit of Memphis — those who have walked side-by-side with those who have not in a one-of-a-kind experience the city won’t soon forget.
So talk to your boss. Make a pact with your roommate. Ask your spouse to watch the kids. Find a way to make this happen. We guarantee you won’t regret it.
