Long Beach Community Foundation’s Second Around the Table Event to Address Homelessness –

The public is invited to attend hosted community conversations to learn about this issue, what’s being done about it and how they can help.

Following on the success of last year’s Around the Table event, the Long Beach Community Foundation will be hosting more Around the Table events beginning on December 3rd that will address the #1 issue facing the city: homelessness.

Presented by the Long Beach Community Foundation, “Around the Table: Activating the Community Around Homelessness” is an opportunity for residents to come together to learn directly from nonprofit and civic leaders about the causes of homelessness in Long Beach, what is being done about it, and how residents and business owners can help. It’s a chance to meet face-to-face with each other and to learn how they can make a positive impact.

“Last year when we convened 3,000 Long Beach residents throughout the city, residents told us they want to be involved in addressing the issue, but they’re not sure how to go about it,” said Marcelle Epley, President & CEO of Long Beach Community Foundation. “This year, Around the Table will give residents the opportunity to educate themselves about homelessness, correct misconceptions directly from those working on the front lines of the issue, and learn easy ways they can step up to help.”

The Around the Table Long Beach events are scheduled for:
Monday, December 3rd at the Golden Sails Best Western (6285 E. Pacific Coast Hwy) 5-6:30pm
Tuesday, December 4th at the Petroleum Club (3636 Linden Ave) 5-6:30pm
Sunday, December 9th at the Assistance League (6220 East Spring Street) from 2-3:30pm

Parking is complimentary, and refreshments will be available. To RSVP for the event, visit http://www.AroundtheTableLB.com or call 562-435-9033.
