A $3.8-million final installment of money raised by the cross-country Hands Across America event has been distributed to 61 groups aiding the hungry and homeless nationwide, organizers said Monday in Los Angeles. The money was raised in conjunction with the May 25, 1986, demonstration in which an estimated 6 million people joined hands. One of the largest individual grants went to a Washington, D.C.,-based organization called the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, which received $250,000.

Bondage Busters, the homeless services organization that not long ago was flying high with spacious new quarters and ambitious programs, finds itself homeless this holiday season. Bondage Busters founder and director Charles Hudson had been hoping to work out an arrangement with property owner Robert Wilson since the organization shut down four months ago, but a change in tenants is most likely to happen next month.
