Homeless Coalition hosts Night Without A Roof

The Troup County Homeless Coalition hosts A Night Without a Roof on Dec. 4 at 4 p.m. on Lafayette Square to benefit homeless initiatives. Attendees pay $25 for a “plot” of land inside the square where they will build their own “home” out of cardboard boxes. Participants must bring their own boxes. The $25 dollars will pay for dinner, snack and breakfast the following morning that will be prepared by the local church On A Mission for Christ. In addition, the Troup County Homeless Coalition will hold a blanket, hat, glove, sock and can opener fundraiser that night, along with a food drive, so they can prepare homeless folks for the coming winter months.
