Time-3:30 PM-6:00 PM
Special Note: TIC is collecting NEW pairs of sneakers and socks for homeless teens! The project is taking place now and will end June 10th! We are raising awareness on the statistics related to homless teens and how they need your help especially after being displaced from their homes. Many of them have to walk everywhere they go. So providing them with new sneakers and socks will aleviate some level of distress and discomfort while also building their self-esteem until they are able to find placement. Finale includes a live DJ, food, swag bag give away, summer resource bags, sneakers and socks to homeless youth. GAP, Inc. volunteers will be present to provide hands on support!
