Camel City keeps it rolling this weekend with tons of fun activities! Due to the forecast for heavy rain this weekend, we recommend checking the website of your chosen event to make sure they have not made any changes or cancellations. There is plenty to do inside out of the rain (and even an opportunity to experience how our homeless neighbors handle the rain!) so get on out and do something!
The Festival of Shelters is tied to the Jewish celebration of Sukkot, when the community of faith remembers God’s care for the Israelites while they wandered through the wilderness for forty years with no home and no food. Anthony’s Plot remembers this event by standing in solidarity with those in the city who continue to journey without home and often without food. Each day, they will gather with neighbors in a spirit of hospitality: we will raise awareness about homelessness and will minister to our friends without housing. There is still a need for people to prepare food and donate items. For more information, click HERE
