Homelessness Awareness Month is well underway! We have spent the past two weeks fundraising for the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter in an effort to reach our goal of $10,000, which will be contributed directly to the campaign to build a new shelter. Through the generosity of the Colby community, we have raised $6000, more than half of our goal!
We have some important events coming up that you do not want to miss out on:
On Thursday, November 17 at 7-8 pm in Diamond 122, Colby will welcome a panel of experts who will discuss the topic of Youth Homelessness in Maine. Join the CVC and the Goldfarb Center for an evening of eye-opening discussion about the social realities affecting our state’s youth.
On Friday, we ask everyone to wear their shirts to show their support for the campaign. So if you have not already, be sure to purchase a t-shirt in Pulver for $10 with all proceeds going directly to the shelter.
Thank you so much for your support so far as we continue to raise money for and awareness about the pressing social issue of homelessness. If you feel compelled please donate to the campaign online at https://www.wepay.com/donate/breakingground
