Safe Harbour, and several community partners (Community CARES, Salvation Army, Domestic violence Services and Project SHARE) are working cooperatively to draw attention to Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, November 16-24. As the holidays approach, people take time to consider what they’re thankful for and many choose to donate some of their time, attention, and resources to others. Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is designed to educate the public, draw attention to the problem of poverty, and build up the base of volunteers and supporters for local anti-poverty agencies.
The highlight of the week is a special event at the Carlisle Regional Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, November 20. Safe Harbour, Community CARES, Salvation Army, Domestic Violence Services and Project SHARE are bringing the film, “The Invisible Class” to the theatre, as well as an information fair to educate and give attendees info on how to help the homeless population and agencies serving them. The documentary film, explores what it means to be homeless in the US, challenging stereotypes & examining the systemic causes of mass homelessness in the wealthiest nation in the world. From coast to coast the film is a day in the life of homelessness across the US. Whether you’re a friend to our organization, a student, someone who works in a similar field, or just a fan of movies, this event is for you. The film is suitable for all audiences.
Admission is FREE with a suggested donation of a personal care item or non-perishable food item, all of which will be distributed amongst the partners.
