In its 12th year and for the seventh straight year in Olympia, the community is invited to take part in an active weekend of highlighting the plagues of poverty, discrimination, inhumanity and homelessness while simultaneously celebrating the spirit of togetherness during the annual Hip-Hop 4 The Homeless Benefit Weekend, which is held every final weekend in January. The weekend kicks off with a 3 p.m. KAOS 89.3 FM broadcast Friday, Jan. 24, followed by a family friendly concert Saturday night. For the cost of donated items such as food, clean clothing, hygiene items and cash, concert goers may enjoy Afrok & The Movement, Speaker Minds (Portland), AKA & The Heart Hurt Goods, The Sharp Five and Real Life Click, plus the annual 25360 Awards celebration. At 11 a.m. Sunday, a meal, free massages, haircuts and goods collected the night before will be available for those who need such items. Hip-Hop 4 The Homeless represents the original principles of hip-hop: peace, love, unity, having fun and knowledge.
