National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week--November 10 - 18, 2012
National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is co-sponsored by National Coalition for the Homeless and National Student Campaign Against Hunger & Homelessness. National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week not only brings greater awareness to your community, but also helps to promote the national endeavor to end hunger and homelessness. The plight of those hungry and without a home can be both lonely and difficult. It is imperative to dispel myths that label hunger and homelessness as someone else's problem or claim that an end to hunger and homelessness is impossible.
Student Life is sponsoring a massive food drive, inclusive of a competition between GSU student clubs and organizations to take a stand against hunger. We are asking the entire GSU community to take a stand against hunger, bring in non-perishable foods, and place them in the food bins located around the University. All donations will support the GSU Food Pantry. Every can helps!
