Mayor Brand Statement on the Passing of Mike McGarvin

Mayor Lee Brand released the following statement on the passing of Poverello House founder Mike McGarvin:

“As I have said many times before, collaboration makes things happen and Mike McGarvin was Fresno’s symbol of collaboration. When poverty and homelessness seemed impossible to change, ‘Papa Mike’ showed us the way. His courage and compassion will be sorely missed and our prayers go out to his family, friends, as well as the volunteer community he led through his tireless ministry.”
