Danville Christian Academy's students are making spaghetti and meatballs for dozens of people expected at the potluck luncheon 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday at SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church on Main Street. As the students rolled meatballs they also learned about the problem of homelessness and the lack of affordable housing in Danville.
Willetta Fitzgerald, who works with Safe Connections, has a daughter at DCA, and she has been volunteering to teach a couple of classes about homelessness.
"We talked about how there are people in Danville who are homeless. ... The average homeless person here is not like the ones they see on TV," Fitzgerald said.
