ABC News Anchor Phillip Palmer to Emcee ‘Camp Out to Stamp Out Homelessness’

Black news from Pasadena - Community News - Camp Out to Stamp Out Homelessness emcee Phillip Palmer

Pasadena Polytechnic School Middle School students are
participating in a 'Camp Out to Stamp Out Homelessness'
on April 4-5th. They will be raising awareness about —
and much-needed funds to combat — homelessness in
Southern California.

The teens will gather at dusk—with sleeping bags and PJs—for a sleepover. But at this sleepover, they won't be whispering about crushes. Instead, the teens will discuss the issue of homelessness, and try to imagine what it would feel like to have nowhere to go when the sun goes down.

As part of the inaugural event, Union Station Homeless Services' Camp Out to Stamp Out Homelessness, middle school students from Polytechnic School in Pasadena are gathering April 4, 2014 at their school campus to camp out for a good cause. The Camp Out, which will go through Saturday April 5th, will raise awareness about the issues faced by those who are homeless, and inspire the next generation to make a difference.

Phillip Palmer, an anchor at KABC-TV in Los Angeles, will emcee the event on Friday, April 4. Palmer is the weekday morning anchor for ABC Eyewitness News at 4:30, 5:00, 6:00 and 11:00 a.m.

Students also plan to raise funds to help fight homelessness in the community. They are being encouraged to ask friends and family for pledges, and all money collected will be donated to Union Station Homeless Services.

During the event, students will hear from a formerly homeless client of Union Station Homeless Services and participate in a number of activities meant to shed light on the issue.

Event sponsors include Whole Foods and Dog Haus. Local community members and businesses are encouraged to help underwrite the event by becoming sponsors as well. More information can be found at http://unionstationhs.org/event/campout/.
