Global Month of Service
In conjunction with Harvard's Global Month of Service, The Harvard Club
of Georgia's Public Service Committee will once again help Atlanta's
homeless by serving breakfast and participating in a dialogue on
homelessness in Atlanta.
After we serve breakfast, there will be a moderated discussion with
Austin Thornton, a homeless individual who attends the weekly breakfast
at the Church.
Mr. Thornton will focus his discussion on the situation at the Peachtree
Pines shelter (where he lives) and the controversy involving its
impending closure and what that will mean to the city.

Time: 6:30 am
Location: First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta
Peachtree and 16th Street
