Heroes of the Week: Larry Under the Bridge Volunteers
“All of us are about pulling together for the greater community good,” says Karen Hagen, pastor at Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church and volunteer for Larry Under the Bridge. “Larry continues to care for those he knows and those he hasn’t met yet and is trying to involve as many people as possible to engage with the community’s homeless.”
Larry Under the Bridge is seeking financial support as well as volunteers who can help locate tents, camo tarps and sleeping bags to give away. Those interested in assembling dinners, assisting in driving supplies to the Bay View locations and helping with fundraising efforts are always welcome. In addition, gardeners who can donate fresh veggies or work at Tippecanoe’s community gardens that provide food for the homeless can call the church at 414-481-4680.
