National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

Participating in National Hunger and Homeless 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 without a home, or those living in poverty, can be both lonely and difficult.
