Street Angels in Action
“Hi. Are you hungry?”
It’s a simple question, backed up with an immediate offer of pasta and sandwiches slathered with salmon dip.
A little after 10 p.m. on a recent cold early spring night, two cars pulled up past the Glory Hole — Juneau’s homeless shelter and soup kitchen on South Franklin Street — and a group of women hopped out to dish up plates of hot food.
Chloe Abbott and Jackie Bryant show up in the same spot at least once a week when it’s cold out, with a rotating cast of other volunteers, to distribute food to Juneau’s most vulnerable population — homeless folk who, for one reason or another, are not able to take advantage of a shelter bed and are sleeping on the streets.
