In 2017, Towns stopped by the House of Charity Food Centre in Minneapolis to donate $10,000 for their free public meals program. He also donated his time by serving some meals to homeless. One of our primary goals is to help struggling individuals meet their basic human needs of food and shelter while reducing barriers to their long-term self-sufficiency.
