Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Sofia Quintero Arts and Cultural Center for Soup Loves Toledo! You all helped raise more than $1,000 for the evening’s winner, Toledo Streets Newspaper.
Toledo Streets produces a monthly newspaper that covers community news, but at the core, this is a service organization that gives people the tools and support to lift themselves out of poverty trough work. In addition to selling the newspapers produced by the organization, many of their independent vendors contribute to the publication and sell advertising to support the paper and earn extra income.
Toledo Streets also provides those in need with job training skills and connects them with resources for housing and medical care.
We are so grateful to all the individuals and organizations who submitted proposals for this event, joined us to share their stories, and donated goods, services and time to make our tenth event such a rousing success. You are all awesome, change-making bad@$$es. #YouWillDoBetterInToledo
Mark your calendars for the next event, focused on small business and entrepreneurial ideas, scheduled for May 15th.
