Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

October 30, 2019 - Park Place Outreach and Green Truck Neighborhood Pub will partner to host an awareness event in honor of National Runaway Prevention Month on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at Green Truck Neighborhood Pub, 2430 Habersham St.

From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., all Green Truck customers wearing green will be entered automatically into a raffle for one of two $100 gift cards for Green Truck Pub. Representatives from Park Place Outreach will be onsite to educate the public about their efforts to prevent teen and child homelessness. Green Truck will match all donations made to Park Place Outreach at the event.

“Over 1,000 students within the public school system experienced homelessness last year, and we hope this event will help us educate the community about the dangers faced by runaway and homeless youth,” said Park Place Outreach’s Executive Director Julie Wade.

National Runaway Prevention Month, which began in 2002 as National Runaway Prevention Week under former President George W. Bush, has expanded into a month-long campaign in November. Government representatives, community leaders and nonprofits recognize the event as a way to raise awareness for the challenges faced by runaway and homeless youth.

“We want teens and families to know that there are resources available within our community to help get children and teenagers off of the streets and into safe environments,” said Wade.
