Students Kick Off Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

Events will be held on campus to help combat homelessness in Los Angeles.

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, an eleven-day string of events promoting homelessness solutions in Los Angeles, continued on campus Monday.

Students attended art exhibits, discussions, charity drives and other events throughout the week, all of which work to aid the city's growing homeless community.
