HomeStart Care Package Assembly
November 18, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Operation: End Hunger is currently working with a local shelter, HomeStart, to create a list of their most needed products for their residents. HomeStart’s mission is to provide “a safe, structured home for homeless women and families, helping them to access community resources and offering everyone on-going support to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.” Domestic violence, eviction, unemployment, low-paying jobs, mental illness, lack of support services, family break up and substance abuse are just some of the reasons HomeStart residents find themselves homeless. At UNC’s last home football game on November 18th, Operation: End Hunger will be outside of CVS from 12pm-3pm with a list of HomeStart’s most needed items for people to purchase inside of CVS. There will also be an assembly station, where people can put the items they purchased into nice care packages and sign their names on them.
