KOATS FOR KIDS EASIER TO GET THIS YEAR
CAC is gearing up for the 2012 Koats for Kids!

DEMONSTRATION TO SUPPORT HOMELESS DAY CENTER
Demonstration for Homeless Day Center
Saturday, Sept. 29th , 12 noon
In late October the Truman-Olson Building at 1402 South Park Street (adjacent to the Copps grocery store) is scheduled for demolition in preparation for the redevelopment of South Park Street. We would like to see this site used for a comprehensive Homeless Day Center which would provide a place for people who are homeless to access services to help them find a job and a place to live. These services are currently scattered throughout the area making them difficult to access.
Demonstrate September 29th at 12 noon in front of the Truman-Olson building, 1402 South Park Street to tell the City of Madison that a Homeless Day Center is needed.
Rides to the Truman-Olson site will leave Veteran’s Plaza at 11:30 a.m. on September 29th.
