Homeless Youth Food Drive



Stopped by the shelter last week to see how things were going and do a quick photo to advance a food drive. It was a more quiet evening just before the doors close for the night and I was lucky to get this frame. If you are in the Salt Lake area and have some are feeling charitable, the HYRC (Homeless Youth Resource Center) just north of 700 South State, next to the Bayou restaurant, is in need of food donations for the homeless youth who frequent the center every day. You can always stop by and leave food - as the fall approaches so does the busy season for shelters.
I hadn't been in there since around February when I worked on a project about a small group of teens who frequent the center. Not much had changed, except there were new faces, none of those I photographed months ago were around. Made me wonder where they had gone - with kids like these the possibilities were truly endless.
