The second annual 48-hour vigil by Lost-N-Found Youth begins Friday, Nov. 1, at 9 p.m. in the Burkhart's parking lot and the public is invited to come and help fill a moving truck with clothing and, yes, cash. Other items needed: undergarments, socks, razors, shaving cream and other hygienic products. Gift cards to stores such as Kroger and Target are also needed.
Placing hygiene kits at the base of tents at a homeless camp for teens, Rick Westbrook, executive director of Lost-n-Found Youth, attempts to show the seriousness of the plight of homeless youth, specifically LGBT youth.
The short video shot by Lost-n-Found Youth takes viewers on a short tour through a campsite where Westbrook says LGBT youth are living. And with cold weather on its way, he asks the community for financial support to help the young people get off the streets.
