National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week
Time & Location
About the Event
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is an annual program where people come together across the country to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness. KIC-IT will be spending the week holding a series of educational, service, fundraising, and advocacy events.
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is co-sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness. The event originated at Villanova University in 1975 and now takes place each year in over 700 communities across the country.
Join us for our KICK OFF EVENT: Stuff the Trunk- HH Week on Monday, November 16, 2020 from 9:00-4:30 p.m. Bring your donations at 11:30 a.m. to participate in our inaugural National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week public proclamation with Steve Barnett for Franklin Mayor and the Franklin Indiana Chamber of Commerce!
All month long, members of the community are invited to stop by Franklin Branch - Johnson County Public Library - Indiana to check out featured books for youth (at various reading levels) to be introduced to the topics of poverty and homelessness in an educational way. KIC- IT at the Library has 10 titles available and are featured in the display case immediately to your right when you enter from the front, main entrance.
