Despina is the author of Last Night's Soup Run: Feeding the Hungry and the homeless, a memoir about the overlooked homeless population.
Her personal experiences involve working with a monthly "soup run" which is throught her church's women's philanthropic organiztion - Philoptochos, at Holy Trinity Church. The group has served more than 12,000 meals in 12 years to those who are homeless.
Despina's book will be available to purchase at the event for $15, and of that, $12 will be donated to community services associates to help feed the hungry and homeless.
The evening will end with a congregation-wide Sandwich Brigade led by TIFTY from 8-9 pm to benefit Hope Community Services.
