Centre to hold Poverty
and Homelessness Week
To raise awareness, several Centre College student organizations are sponsoring a week of activities that simulate and expose participants to the realities of poverty.
Centre's annual Poverty and Homelessness Week runs today through Saturday. Activities include a clothing drive, a coffeehouse with performers from Louisville shelters, a hunger-simulation banquet, a shoe drive and a homeless sleep-out.
Money will be raised for the HOPE Center shelter in Lexington. The Panhellenic Council will serve food at the Salvation Army. Students will fast, and the meal money they would normally spend will be donated to a world hunger relief organization.
