Wavy Boy Clothing and the founder’s family charity, The Arigbon Charity Foundation have made community a priority. Last month they hosted the first Hope 4 the Hungry event in downtown Portland, feeding over 100 people near Skidmore Fountain, an area that is known for its transient population.
Tomorrow they will host their second community event. They chose the time of 9pm because most other places don’t serve food after 6pm. Their choice to host these events over the summer is also a wise one. Many people are unaware that shelters often close over the summer. Many are open strictly during the cold months and folks tend to find themselves in need in the warm months. Even though there’s no chance of catching hypothermia in June, there are still needs that should be addressed. The Arigbon Charity Foundation is addressing one of the biggest concerns, hunger.
