Delivering a helping hand

leave a comment »

Under the coordination of La Cañada High School 7/8 eighth grader and School 4 Vice President Jacob Brown and family, pillows, blankets, socks and gloves were delivered to the homeless living on the streets in Pasadena on Saturday morning. The group also served the homeless breakfast. Originally scheduled to take place at Central Park in Pasadena, the distribution was moved to Memorial Park in Pasadena due to the heavy rain.

The Saturday distribution is an extension of the weekly distribution that the students hold on Wednesday afternoons from 4 to 5:30 at Memorial Park, said Brown. Started by his father, Fritz Brown, the Wednesday distributions — which have been held for the last two years — give the homeless food and provide them with Bible study, Jacob Brown said, all within the park.
