Sports stars and local T.V. personalities will be serving dinner at the HuHot Mongolian Grill tonight to support Blessings Under the Bridge.
Jessica Kovac and her husband Mike started serving brown bag meals to the area's homeless in 2007. Since then it has grown into a weekly meal service and non-profit. Their brown bags include sandwiches and home made baked goods, as well fruit and toiletries. Each recipient is offered a bottle of water and coffee or cocoa.
“Blessings Under the Bridge has just boomed so much,” says Kovac, adding that she and her husband never expected their weekly ministry to become a non-profit. BUTB estimates that it takes only $12.00 to provide brown bags for ten homeless.
