Chain of Lakes Church is hosting a benefit breakfast for homeless teens Sunday, April 13 from 9 to 10:15 a.m.
The church meets at the DaVinci Academy, 13001 Central Ave., in Blaine.
Tickets for breakfast are $8. Families can attend for $20.
All proceeds from the breakfast will go to the Tiger Take-Out program at Blaine High School that provides food to teens in need of assistance.
“We are very excited that Chain of Lakes Church is sponsoring this breakfast for the Tiger Take-Out Program,” said Robin Burge-Ross, homeless lead at Blaine High School. “This breakfast will help inform the community about the issues of homelessness that some teens in our own community unfortunately encounter.”
Burge-Ross estimates that at least 35 teens at Blaine High School are homeless.
At the Chain of Lakes 10:30 a.m. worship service April 13 after the breakfast, Centennial Fire Chief Jerry Streich will share his story of being homeless as a teenager.
“We want to do everything we can to support homeless teens,” said Rev. Paul Moore, organizing pastor from Chain of Lakes Church. “It’s shocking to many people in our community that teens are actually homeless. We hope this breakfast can help galvanize people in our community that this issue needs to be addressed.”
