WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — The holidays are a time of giving back, and in D.C. this weekend, a group will gather for a full-on spread of food just for the homeless.
Dozens are expected to come out to volunteer to serve food for the event being held by "Food Dude USA," Brandon Frye. A coat drive was also held earlier in the month.
D.C. is one of the areas in the country most affected by homelessness, with over 7,400 estimated to be without a permanent home every day in 2017. Even though homelessness is reportedly declining in D.C. and across the country, the issue still affects over 553,000 across America.
