Can you spare some change?

"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness."- Seneca

We've all had encounters with panhandlers in our communities - and many of us have felt compelled to give. Here in Durham, the Interneighborhood Council is initiating an education campaign to encourage folks to instead direct their donations to organizations, like Genesis Home, which are providing services that sustainably support folks as they move out of homelessness.

Although we've already exceeded our Tri to End Homelessness fundraising goal for the year, organizations like Genesis Home can always use your ongoing financial support. Can you spare some change?
