— Now, more than ever, with our government shut down, we need help for the homeless. I suggest a gathering at Finlay Park with food and volunteers to meet and do a survey with the homeless. This would enable them to share the skills and talents on paper and perhaps have a location or phone number where they can be reached when something comes available.

Perhaps they could stay on the Bull Street property before the stadium is built. They could help clean, paint and restore the property. After all, this site was used before to help others. True? I am willing to volunteer.
