Caroling begins the tour experience!

Heery, who was once homeless, said the tour not only benefits a social cause, but it also portrays information and is a learning opportunity for people about the history of social issues and how they’ve been addressed.

“In an advocacy role, sometimes we’re aggressive, but this gives us the opportunity to start the discussion with people in a very entertaining, light-hearted, seasonal approach to rasing people’s awareness to these issues,” Heery said.

“It gives us an opportunity to meet the people who are coming through, and a lot are local, but the common thread is that they all know homelessness exists, whether it’s in their community or in ours as tourists or as Savannah residents. So it does give us a foundation. We want to begin the dialogue about how people can be part of solutions that aren’t currently being looked at in our community,” said Heery.
