National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week: November 16-22, 2008
Each year, one week before Thanksgiving, the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness co-sponsor National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. It’s a time when – across the nation – schools, cities, and community organizations take action around these serious issues.
Your participation in National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week can bring greater awareness, solidarity, and understanding of the causes behind hunger and homelessness and also dispel some of the myths that surround them. Events like “One Night Without a Home” help people grasp some of the very real challenges and difficulties that homeless individuals and families face every day.
For more information about this project and others visit the National Coalition for the Homeless website.
You can also download the 2008 Awareness Week manual (PDF) for more details.
