Give-A-Jam to End Homelessness!

On Thursday, December 20th, the 2nd annual "Give-A-Jam to End Homelessness" will take place at the Clifton Center. The event will showcase many of Louisville's most talented artists including John Gage, Justin Lewis, Hog Operation, Scott Carney, plus many, many more!

Additionally, there will be an array of soups and stews from local restaurants such as The Irish Rover, Proof on Main, Taco Punk and the Silver Dollar! Those restaurants and musicians participating are donating their time and talent, and the event will be staffed entirely of volunteers to ensure that all proceeds go to benefit the Coalition for the Homeless. There will also be a cash bar and bidding on a variety of silent auction items!

John and Natalie Harris, a husband and wife team, came up with "Give-A-Jam" with the help of many friends and supporters. John is the Executive Director of the Clifton Center, while Natalie is the Executive Director of The Coalition for the Homeless. Last year was the first year for the event and raised $8,500 for the organization! This year's goal is to raise over $10,000.

All proceeds raised will go specifically towards the Coalition Rx: Housing Program. The goal of the Rx: Housing campaign is to house the most vulnerable homeless persons on the streets of Metro Louisville.
