KDHX Media Sponsorship Event Profile: The TOCO Family Street Festival
- Written by KDHX
The TOCO Family Street Festival, scheduled for Saturday, October 1st from 12 to 6pm on West Main Street in Belleville will offer workshops about the arts, sustainability and the importance of a life of service.
Enjoy live music, food, drinks and shopping while supporting TOCO, a not-for-profit that helps individuals, children, and families obtain clothing and other basic needs in addition to providing guidance in preventing and overcoming homelessness.
Without adequate support to navigate our highly complex world, a person or family in crisis can very quickly find themselves unhoused as a result of a single unforgiving misstep. Tapestry of Community Offerings serves the Belleville community in a number of ways: TOCO provides guidance to help individuals overcome homelessness, offers assistance to prevent homelessness, and collaborates with other community organizations to work to end homelessness. Additionally, TOCO operates a non-profit thrift shop to help individuals, children, and families obtain clothing as well as other basic needs and reduce the number of items being thrown into the landfill.
TOCO fulfills basic needs while encouraging our neighbors to develop a wider vision of the world, make a positive impact on the lives of others through service, and build a sustainable future. TOCO operates a shop and textile pantry which has served thousands of families over the past six years.
