MADISON, Wis. — A downtown Madison bar offered meals and other essential items on Thanksgiving to those experiencing homelessness.
The giveaway at Hawk’s Bar and Grill was organized by Urban Triage, The Black Men Coalition of Dane County and Beacon House.
Organizers wanted to spread a message that nobody should feel left alone this Thanksgiving.
“Everyone deserves to be happy on Thanksgiving,” said Corey Marionneaux, founder of the Black Men Coalition of Dane County. “Some people can’t be around their families this year. Some people can’t afford it, and I’ve been there. So I understand. I can relate.”
Event organizers also provided people with blankets and packages of essential items.
