Temporarily homeless
Six members of Nu Alpha Kappa fraternity are raising awareness of homelessness in the community by experiencing homelessness first-hand. The members are spending a week in the quad at CSU Stanislaus. This includes sleeping, eating, and doing every day-to-day activity at their campsite in the grass. They gave up luxuries like cell phones and computers for the duration of the experiment, and fraternity president Humberto Sanchez said they can only leave the quad for classes.
The group is accepting donations of money, canned food, and clothing for local homeless support organizations. Representatives from We Care, United Samaritan Foundation, and Turlock Gospel Mission will speak from 11 a.m. to noon on today on campus. A candlelight vigil will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the quad.
