Homeless and Hunger

Hunger & Homeless Awareness Week Nov 14-17

November 14th - 17th | GWC Quad

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is a time where we as a campus and community may come together to draw attention to individuals who have food insecurities and/or are experiencing homelessness. Unfortunately, hunger and homelessness are a reality for far too many people.

GWC will be hosting a 4-day event to bring awareness on the statistics, student testimonials, resources, donating opportunities etc. All tangible items that are donated will go towards supporting GWC students, StandUp for Kids, Orangewood Foundation, OakView, Robyne’s Nest.
