Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Month

November is National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Month. During this month, we focus our efforts on drawing our community’s attention to the needs of those experiencing all forms of homelessness- whether temporary, transitional, generational, and hidden. This year, we have partnered with area businesses to raise awareness of homelessness and funding for our Home Sweet Home campaign. Meet our 2022 Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Partners below, and be sure to visit their shops and stores to show your support!
