Kamiakin High School senior LeeAnna Wright wants Tri-Citians to know more about homeless teens in our community.
As part of her culminating graduation project, Wright organized a free awareness event 5 to 7 p.m. on March 26 at the Country Gentleman restaurant.
There will be comments from a teen who struggled with homelessness, along with music and light snacks.
Officials from teen shelter My Friends Place will be on hand to answer questions and offer opportunities for people to help through donations and other aid.
The restaurant is at 9221 W. Clearwater Ave. in Kennewick.
