Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week
November 13-21, 2021 is National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week. During this week, 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 agency programs. Meet our 2021 Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Partners below, and be sure to visit their shops and stores to show your support!
