Workers in the downtown area made a quick appearance at Veterans Park on Thursday, gathering as a flash mob to raise the awareness of the “I Am One” campaign to end childhood homelessness.
Many homeless children don’t finish school and end up as homeless adults with children, she said.
The flash mob involved 388 people who walked from different parts of downtown to Veterans Park. They formed the word “ONE” and cheered “I am One” while photographers snapped away.“It’s great to be part of something so big, so important,” said Tara Dutton, who works at HRC Total Solutions, a third-party administrator that encouraged its workers to participate. “It’s so hot, but it’s worth it.”
The event next Thursday is free and is scheduled to run from 5 to 9:30 p.m. at Veterans Park. It will feature, food, drink and a music competition involving three separate acts.
“She agreed, but state police nixed it. State police said they can’t protect her in the fashion she needs,” he said.
