Each year, the Coalition for the Homeless joins forces with the Department of Veterans Affairs and Metro Louisville to put on Stand Down, a one-day resource fair where 600 homeless people come to access over 70 services in one central location.
For the second year in a row, the Coalition for the Homeless’ Associate Board is challenging the members of our community to donate $10 to buy a backpack for a homeless person attending the event. Donate prior by Monday, 9/25, and your backpack will be given out at Stand Down on Wednesday, October 4.
To donate, click here, enter $10 (or another amount you want to donate), and enter “#GiveBackLouisville” as the “Designation.” Be sure to follow the steps to create an account so that your donation goes through. Every gift given in this way will be restricted toward buying a backpack for someone in need.
