20th Anniversary Gala for Spare Change News – June 21, 2012

It’s hard to believe, but Spare Change News is all grown up. For the past 20 years, Spare Change News has been empowering persons experiencing homelessness and other forms of social and economic adversity to improve their lives through self-employment. Through the voices of its vendors and the content of its pages, Spare Change has consistently engaged in advocacy and worked to dispel myths surrounding homelessness and poverty. Join the vendors, staff, and board members of the Homeless Empowerment Project to celebrate the 20th Anniverary of Spare Change, with special exhibits explaining the organization’s history and impact.
