Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

RoCoMagazine - December 20, 2017

Come early November, with the holidays nearing, people often take notice of what they’re thankful for—the roofs over their heads, the clothes on their backs, the food in their bellies— and many choose to donate their time, energy, and resources in an effort to help those who are less fortunate. Similarly, here at Rosemont, we feel as though it is our duty to raise awareness about the pressing issue of poverty in our country, particularly the 500-something thousand people who are without shelter and live on the edge of starvation, and we encourage our students and staff to attend at least one of the several service events Campus Ministry organizes during the holiday season.
