Learn what is being done to help the elderly homeless population in Downtown Phoenix

Artist Alexi Devilliers was shocked when he learned the struggles of Downtown Phoenix’s elderly homeless population. “They have food Monday through Friday, but nothing on Saturday and Sunday, so my wife and I took it upon ourselves to start getting them something big and hearty.” Devilliers and his wife bought fresh food and canned goods and make between 80 to 125 meals every week and hands them out at the Justa Center. To raise money for the meals, Devilliers used his artistic background and turns the used cans into robot art that he sells at First Friday events. The host will talk with Alexi about his desire to help those in need through his art and how it makes him feel. We will watch him create his work as well.
