Fighting Hunger and Homelessness

Friday, November 22, 2019
Focusing on issues of poverty that affect approximately 12 percent of Putnam County residents, Mayor Bill Dory is joined by Beyond Homeless’ Board President Travis Linneweber (left) and new executive director Lea Durbin as he signs a proclamation declaring the week of Nov. 18 - 24 as Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week Thursday morning. The proclamation highlighted that Beyond Homeless has provided shelter for 500 women and children, totaling more than 20,000 bed nights since opening in March 2014.

Additionally, Music on the Square hosted a Nourish Putnam County event on Monday that featured a few brave souls camping out in the November weather. The week concludes with a benefit concert tonight at Wasser Brewing Co.

  • So Monday was the 18th and tomorrow will be the 24th, and he signed the Proclamation on Thursday, when the week is half over. Way to stay on top of things Mayor.

  • Sierra: Way to jump to conclusions. Did you ever consider maybe this wasn't presented to him until Thursday? Get a life.
