World Homeless Day
October 10th
This day is a reminder to all of us that the homeless population has many needs and to keep in mind the many opportunities that are there for all of us to help.   

Consider a family project to bring awareness to your children. We have several projects that benefit the homeless community. Check out our website for project ideas. Even something as simple as a card of encouragement to lift an individual's spirit. What a great learning opportunity.   #homelessday
