Several families who were brought to Philadelphia from Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria are facing homelessness in a few weeks, unless the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign can raise the money to secure them housing. The FEMA vouchers end for these families on March 20th. You can read more about their plight in this article in the Inquirer.
In an attempt to raise some of that money for families in need, I will be hosting a quizzo event at the World Cafe Live on March 18th. Live Latin Music will be played between rounds. Tickets are $20 apiece and all of the money (after room expenses) is going towards P-PEHRCs efforts to secure these families housing in Philadelphia.
“The families from Puerto Rico have already been displaced from their home and their land,” says P-PEHRC founder Cheri Honkala. “We can’t stand by and watch families become homeless again. We are grateful that Johnny Goodtimes has stepped forward to assist us in raising money to house these families.”
Tickets are available online here and can also be purchased from Goodtimes next week at his weekly quizzes.
