Planting Peace's Fundraiser:

Ft. Lauderdale City Hall Food Truck for the Homeless

Planting Peace's Photo

BENEFITING: Planting Peace

THE STORY:

Arnold Abbot, a 90 year old man residing in Fort Lauderdale who has dedicated his life to feeding the homeless, has been arrested multiple times for violating a city ordinance prohibiting people from feeding the homeless in public. Aaron Jackson, President of Planting Peace, has also been issued two arrest citations for standing in solidarity with Arnold and feeding the homeless in the community. Shockingly, laws restricting feeding the homeless are becoming a common and sad reality across the U.S. In response, Planting Peace is raising funds to place a mobile feeding center that will feed the homeless directly in front of City Hall in Fort Lauderdale. Not only will this mobile feeding center help the many homeless people who live directly in the vicinity of City Hall, it will send a CLEAR message to lawmakers that WE WILL NOT STOP feeding the homeless or back down from fighting this ridiculous ordinance until the laws are changed. As Arnold stated in a recent press interview, "These are the poorest of the poor. They have nothing. How do you turn them away? Any human has the right to help his fellow man." Please help Planting Peace by donating today:
