If you find yourself in the Eugene area on December 9th, I hope you'll join me and many other songwriters at Tsunami Books (on Willamette St.) for the annual benefit concert to raise money for the Egan Warming Center. All donations go directly to the good folks who run the Egan Warming centers every winter so that people who call the street their temporary homes this winter will have a warm, safe place to escape the worst of the winter weather.
"The Egan Warming Center was started by a coalition of community members representing service providers, nonprofits, faith and social activist communities and local governments that came together in 2008 to ensure that homeless people would have shelter during extreme cold weather. It was named in honor of Major Thomas Egan, a Eugene resident who froze to death during a cold spell in 2008."
