Each year, in the week before Thanksgiving, the National Coalition for the Homeless brings together communities, schools, and volunteers across the nation together in an effort to increase awareness about hunger and homelessness in the United States. National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week will be November 11-19, 2017. Visit the HHAW website or the National Coalition for the Homeless website for more information.
USM participates in this week-long effort by offering a variety of events for students to help learn about and volunteer for the cause.
From donation bins and documentary viewings to volunteering at our local Portland food pantry, students will have a wide array of events to particpate in. Please stay tuned to this page to see exactly what we've got planned!
