Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
The third foray was with Dick on Christmas night, December 25. We went to Civic Center in front of the Bill Graham Auditorium. There was at least 100 homeless camping there. We gave out 14 hygiene bags that were donated by Serena and Nelson. We also gave out a couple dozen blankets and several sweaters. This was the toughest crowd yet. There were about 100 people. Very dirty, very depressed, very cold and several people having a tough time mentally. I saw one guy shooting up heroin in his groin. It was really difficult to see.
Thank you everyone who is supporting and will be supporting this 5th annual clothing + drive which will go until at least March 1st.
