Michael Gordon, president and CEO of The Pursuit of Happiness, and Board Member Troy Rogers are bringing awareness to untreated mental illnesses that result in homelessness by having The Pursuit of Happiness Inaugural Homeless Clothing Drive.
Participants are able to drop off scarves, hats, socks, coats, gloves, blankets, and thermals at the METMIN Impact Hub, 4001 Rossville Blvd. Suite 110, between 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Mr. Gordan and Mr. Rogers, along with other volunteers, will spend the night outside with the homeless on Feb. 18 to receive clothing items on site at the Tent City near the Community Kitchen. They will be bringing attention to the homeless living conditions and bring awareness to untreated mental illnesses and trauma that lead to homelessness.
