YPG Cares: Housing Works Open Air Street Fair

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

Every year Housing Works Bookstore puts on a festive, all-day shopping bazaar called the Open Air Street Fair. Books are sold along with other items like records, CDs, clothing, and accessories to benefit the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS. Housing Works has asked YPG to be a part of making the day possible! (Read about YPG’s previous participation in this awesome event here  and here . And check out Housing Works’s write-up about the upcoming June event here.
