McCoy’s Hosts Concert in the Lumberyard for Mobile Loaves & Fishes

The owners of McCoy’s Building Supply turned their Manchaca Lumberyard in South Austin into a concert venue on a Saturday evening for the benefit of Mobile Loaves & Fishes.

The event was hosted by Wetonnah and Brian McCoy and Richard and Meagan McCoy Jones and raised more than $24,000 for Austin-based Mobile Loaves & Fishes.

Speaking to an audience of about 80 friends and family, Ms. McCoy Jones highlighted the important role of family in her life and others, commenting that the single greatest cause of homelessness is a lack of family.

“I can’t even imagine who I would be without the family I have that cares for me through thick and thin,” she said, “and tonight is about helping to provide a community, a family, to folks who don’t have it— that’s where we have to start if we’re going to earnestly impact the people in our community who are homeless.”

The money raised from the event goes to support Community First!—an outreach program of Mobile Loaves & Fishes that is effectively confronting homelessness by lifting chronically homeless men and women up off the streets, providing supportive, affordable and sustainable housing based in a loving and hospitable environment with resources to improve quality of life.

Highlights of the evening included dinner by Alfred’s Catering, a concert by Austin musician, humanitarian and philanthropist John Pointer, and presentations by Mobile Loaves & Fishes President Alan Graham and a couple with their infant daughter who are living in a home through Community First!
