This year’s event will serve as the kick – off for the public phase of our $3.2 million capital campaign. All funds will go toward renovating DESK’s new Drop-in & Resource Center on State Street, which will include a new kitchen, an elevator, and full medical clinic staffed by Cornell Scott Hill Health Center’s Homeless Healthcare Department. We are 86 percent of the way there already! As the kick-off of the public phase, we hope to raise at least $60,000 at the Breaking Bread Dinner.
