Hope du Jour
Tuesday, May 2, was a beautiful day in so many ways. The weather was wonderful and the 140 participating restaurants were abuzz with folks dining out to support Crisis Control’s Hope du Jour. Thank you to the restaurants who will be donating 10% of their proceeds from May 2, and to all of the diners who came out to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner!
So far in 2017, 412 Poverty Simulation participants have spent an hour facing the challenges of a person in poverty. At the end of the simulation, when asked for one word to describe their experience, they say stressful, overwhelming, and opinion-changing.
