5 Days for the Homeless raises dollars, food and awareness

Published on March 20 2012


The Brock 5 Days for the Homeless team spent 5 nights living on the streets.  No home, no bed, no showers, no smart phones.  What they got in return was priceless.  The Brock team raised $2147 and 725 pounds of food for Community Care.  More importantly, they raised awareness of a serious issue.  Not only do they personally have a much greater understanding of homelessness, they have brought greater awareness to their fellow students and members of the community.

5 Days for the Homeless is part of a broader initiative organized by University students across Canada.
