TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Hundreds of folks took part in the One Matters March to Tent City to raise awareness about homelessness Saturday in downtown Toledo

The event demonstrated how many people are impacted by homelessness and how important the community's support is to their survival.

"If you look at the lines today, that is our community in need. If you look at the people in the walk, that's our community responding," said march organizer Ken Leslie.

Organizers say they will march every year in Toledo. They also have marches planned in six other cities.
