13th Annual Feed the Homeless Community Awareness Day and 5K Walk for the Homeless and Homeless Veterans
Saturday July 7, 2018 at Freedom Plaza, Washington, D.C. (12pm - 8pm)
Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets (PRPIS) is proud to host its 13th Annual Feed the Homeless Community Awareness Day and new 5K Walk for the Homeless and Homeless Veterans. This years theme is serving our homeless veterans and heightening the awareness of our citys homeless youth and senior citizens in our Nations Capital and of the many resources that can be provided. Our countrys Veterans need those of us who enjoy the freedom of life to stand beside them as our youth need us to lead them. Let us join together hand and hand and change the face of homelessness today not tomorrow. For the above to happen, remember "It takes a village".
The 5K walk will be begin at 8a.m to 11:30a.m. in East Potomac Park - Hains Point, located on Ohio Drive SW Washington, D.C.. The walk will circle Hains Point for (2) miles and the last mile will be from Hains Point to Freedom Plaza (14th & Pennsylvania Ave. NW Washington DC). The Community Awarenes event will take place on the grounds of Freedom Plaza between 12pm 7pm. with plenty of live entertainment along with the Feeding of the Homeless. We are honored to have for this years 5K Walk Grand Marshalls WJLA News Personality Julie Wright, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department Assistant Chief of Police Diane Groomes, and the children of the late great Godfather of Go-Go Chuck Brown.
PRPIS is also honored to host this event on our citys historical Freedom Plaza, renamed from Resurrection City, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. It will represent an opportunity for us all to work toward freeing our city of this unwanted homeless plague that is continuously growing in these United States of America. Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets has hosted 11 annual events centered around feeding the homeless. We find that not only does it feed the homeless by way of food nutrition, but helps to feed their minds to raise self esteem. There will also be health screenings, local vendors, informational booths, live entertainment from local and national talent, and assistance with providing vital information for those in attendance. We also will have homeless organizations and speakers that will be giving presentations throughout the day.
Pep Rally for Peace of the Streets has extended an invitation to city officials who can shed light on the state of homelessness in their jurisdiction and our city as whole: Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Mayor Muriel Bowser, City council and At large city council members from all 8 wards, ANC commissioners, and other civic leaders, community activist, the Chuck Brown Foundation, and area media personalities.
