If you take a drive around Amarillo there is no surprise that we face a problem with homelessness. We see so many people on the street corners asking for money. If you drive Downtown Amarillo it seems to be even worse.
The Interfaith Campaign for the Homeless is an organization that helps over 17 different agencies in Amarillo who work with the homeless. The annual Beans and Cornbread Luncheon is their biggest fundraiser and it is happening on Monday, October 29th.
For me, Amarillo is one of those cities you can get lost in your own world in. It seems like we are almost isolated from the struggle the rest of the country faces. However, for many citizens that is not the case.
