Of all our participants, the one that stood out to me the most was the individual who lost his glasses when someone set him on fire. There is some real cruelty in the world. But at our event, we did our best to also show that there is a lot of kindness and compassion in the world.
Of our 39 participants, 22 got connected to prescription eye glasses with Project Homeless Connect, 18 visited with nurses and had their blood pressures checked and 3 received flu shots from Walgreens.
A big thank you to all the partners and volunteers who made today's event a sucess, including:
- St. Paulus Lutheran Church
- Project Homeless Connect
- SF CARES
- The Castro Lions Club
Prescription glasses given out since our project began: 63
