We are raising funds to find Leon a permanent home. He has a hotel room until Jan. 3 thanks to the generosity of some amazing local friends. The thought of having to take him from a warm room with a bed and toilet back to a bench in the middle of a pandemic is too much to even think about. We need to find him a safe place to live in his beloved neighborhood of Lomita NOW.
Leon is a kind, sweet man with a huge smile and full body laugh. He is smart and does not drink or use drugs. I asked him last year what he wanted, and he said he just wants to be treated like a human being. I will never forget that. We are called to help those less fortunate than us. Please donate whatever you can to help us get Leon a place to live. It is truly better to give than to receive. The funds will be used for rent, utilities, groceries.
Also, for anyone who wants to see and buy his art, go to his website
EVERYONE WHO DONATES $100.00 OR MORE BY 12/31/2020 WILL BE INCLUDED IN A DRAWING FOR ONE OF LEON'S PAINTINGS!!!!!!!!!
