SAW Serves: Fall “Feed-n-Play” for the Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless

On October 19th, a team of SAW volunteers grilled burgers and hot dogs, and served up a nice meal for the 90 clients and staff at the men’s shelter in Rockville, Maryland. Once the men were fed, the cooks brought out their guitars and did a 2 hour show in the lunchroom for the clients. It was a wonderful event for all. In addition, a one-year membership to SAW was given away in a random drawing. The client who won said he would pass on the gift to a young music student. I offer thanks to the following SAW members who went above and beyond with their help: Larry Mediate (P/A set up, and set), Les Hatley (cook, set); Jean Bayou (cook, set) and Jim and Ashley Cash (cook, set). Also helping with the food, Amina Bayou, and on grill and guitar, Mark Lovett.

We are planning a Winter event in December or January at a Virginia shelter. To help us, please consider a cash donation to SAW earmarked for “SAW Serves”, or, a donation of help and/or music for an upcoming event. Together, we can put food in hungry mouths, and music in hungry ears!

Songwriters' Association of Washington is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
