Icon City started more than six months ago, as a way to deal with the growing number of homeless young people in the area. The organization holds monthly concerts to raise awareness and money and they send out weekly texts on specific needs in the community. Lonnie Chapin says in its short tenure, the group is making a difference. “We’re taking people who want to help, but don’t know how and we’re taking them off the sidelines and throwing them into the game for the first time. I think, you know people talk about “I’d like to help, I just don’t know how. Where, what, do I make a sandwich, you know, where do I go?” So they can get in the game and give them an opportunity to really help, and use the things that they have.” Every Sunday afternoon from 2 to 3 p.m. behind the Tower Theater, the group collects donations for the homeless.
