Shelter Me! Party In The Park To Raise Awareness Of Social Issues

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The 4th Annual Shelter Me! Party in the Park will take over Galt Gardens on Friday.

 

It's hosted by a number of community partners including Social Housing in Action, the Downtown BRZ, London Road Neighborhood Association, McCan, Peak Vocational and Support Services, Amnesty International and the Community Substance Abuse Response Team.

 

There will be free kids activities, live entertainment, an open air market and a concession offering inexpensive hotdogs, pop and chips. Those who live in the shelter get a free meal, as well coupons were sent out in food bank hampers in June and July.

 

Spokesperson Deanna Vincent says "it's about raising awareness, it's about getting people into the downtown core, it's about realizing that our neighbors who are struggling aren't frightening, aren't anything, they're just people who really just need to be understood and we just need to come together to give them a hand."

 

The event kicks off at 10:30am on Friday and runs until 4pm.
