WK : “Hoodies For The Homeless”

image1

Started back in 2015 “Hoodies For The Homeless” founder Tavis Eaton had a plan to provide New York Cities homeless with one of the most needed items to survive the winter (hoodies) there are over 60,000 homeless people in the shelters of this harsh city and that number does not include those not fortunate enough to make it to the shelters before they fill up. During the winter of 2016 alone “Hoodies For The Homeless” collected 10,000 hoodies with the help of the New York Giants, Eaton and his team recently put together an art auction in SoHo to raise money and awareness for the cause.

Eaton says the reason he started the foundation was because while growing up in NYC you couldn’t walk down the street without encountering a homeless person, he says “A lot of people don’t know this, but there are more homeless in the street right now than there was during The Great Depression.” The art event featured performances by PushMethod, Kirk Knight and Nyck Caution who preformed many of their popular tracks like A$AP Ferg-collaborated “Setup,” “What’s Understood,” and “Far” even Joey Bada$$ could be spotted at the event.
