CEO of Keystone Mission plans to be outside for 24-hours straight in October at Public Square Pack in Wilkes-Barre
SCRANTON/WILKES-BARRE, PA—Justin Behrens, CEO and Executive Director of Keystone Mission, plans to be outside at Public Square Pack in Wilkes-Barre for 24-hour straight for the organization’s 2nd annual REAL TALK. The event “REAL TALK” began last October as a tool to engage with the community of Northeastern PA about the rise of homelessness in the NEPA community. REAL TALK is from Wednesday, October 13–October 14, 3:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Behrens is prepared to sit outside for the full 24-hours. “I desire the local community to understand how serious I am to help the men and women who are experiencing homelessness. October is when the temps begin to get lower at night, and many of our guests at the Keystone Mission have to face those dropping temps.”
Behrens plans to host the entire event on the Keystone Mission Facebook page. He encourages local, state, and federal officials and community members to speak with him regarding the barriers and red tape that make the services to the homeless incredibly hard to receive.
Save the Date for October 13 starting at 3:00 p.m. Invitations to local, state, and federal officials will be sent out within the next two weeks. Last year’s REAL TALK brought about great success and partnerships to Keystone Mission. Behrens looks forward to this year. Learn more about the event online at www.NEPARealTalk.com.
