According to a recent New York Times article, in Fresno,CA, which has a population of about 500,000, there are as many as 2,000 homeless people. This means that for every thousand people living in Fresno, there are at least four that are homeless. The article notes, “Makeshift tent cities stir memories of shantytowns of the Depression”. Many people across the nation are suffering and losing their jobs and homes due to this economic crisis. Join us at the concert to help those in need.
