ACT UP/Boston’s spin off of homeless activists, The Boston Homeless Solidarity Committee, will be hosting a series of Summer Cookouts to feed and organize the homeless. To celebrate Independence Day, the first cookout, We the People: A Cookout for the Homeless, by the Homeless, will be a celebratory kickoff event for the smaller cookouts to follow. That will be held July 3rd in Boston’s Ramsey Park.
Last year, homeless Lenny Higginbottom, now a BHSC member, threw a 4th of July Cookout for Boston’s homeless using his monthly check. Your donation can make our organize-the-homeless cookouts a success. Plus this year, Lenny will be able to keep his check!i
BHSC has NO paid staff: Every member of BHSC’s “Union of the Homeless” is an activist/volunteer. Hence the need for funds. They also would appreciate donations of food, charcoal, sound equipment, etc., to help make these cookouts memorable and inspiring events to impel Boston’s homeless.
