The holidays are the perfect time to reach out and give back to the community and remember how lucky we are if we have food in our mouths, a place to sleep and a few dollars in our pocket. Unfortunately, some of us are not so lucky and do not have food, a place to sleep or any monies in our pockets. Some are living on the streets and fighting to make it day to day. Detroit has seen its fair share of poverty and struggle the last few decades and it is a city in desperate need of help, to take care of the growing number of homeless, jobless, moneyless people that call this city home. This is where music can step in and uses its universal power to unite to help raise funds.
Friday, December 14th, The Loving Touch is hosting a benefit for the South Oakland Shelter. They have invited Will Sessions, Misty Lyn & The Big Beautiful and Matt Jones & The Reconstruction to play to help raise money for the shelter.
South Oakland Shelter has been working in our community for over 25 years to provide temporary lodging and supportive services to individuals and families that are in need. They help these people by not only giving them a place to sleep for the night, but also by helping them find long term solutions to help change their lives around and make sure that they have a place to sleep for years to come.
This event has a suggested $5 donation, but they will take whatever you are willing to give! Come down to The Loving Touch after 9 p.m. on the 14th to hear some great music and raise money for a great cause!
