HPS 1000 Thrive Students Plan Homelessness Awareness Kickoff Event


Over 200 students attended and participated in the walk at the Campus Green on Monday, November 3rd from 2:00pm-4:00pm. Participants took five laps around the Green, each lap related to the homeless experience:


Lap 1: NO signify the lack of proper footwear.

Lap 2: RUB DIRT ON signify the inability to find regular hygiene stations and proper washing areas.

Lap 3: CARRY ICE CUBES or REMOVE signify the inability to generate funds required to buy weather appropriate clothing.

Lap 4: BLINDFOLD (One partner will blindfold the other, guiding them throughout the lap, and then half-way through partners will switch being blindfolded) signify the struggle for families, especially the parents who have the burden of taking care of their children while also worrying about the many aspects of homelessness.

Lap 5: CARRY AMERICAN signify the homeless Veteran population. Students were asked to think about Veterans that have fought for our country and returned from fighting with no place to live.
