For communities across the country, November 14th-20th is National Homelessness and Hunger Awareness Week!  Join us for dialogue, a food drive, a movie, and a community-read of The Soloist by Steve Lopez.

Below is a calendar of upcoming events:

November 9, 5PM, City Hall (2nd Floor) City Council Proclaims that November 14-20, 2010 is National Homelessness and Hunger Awareness Week in Asheville, NC.

November 14-20, UNCA Campus Food Drive – all food will be donated to the Emma Family Resource Center

November 18, 7pm, UNCA Humanities Lecture Hall Movie screening of The Soloist. FREE! Food Donations welcome.

Communities use National Homelessness and Hunger Awareness week to promote existing efforts to end hunger and homelessness while engaging the community in a dialogue that can lead to greater awareness and collaboration.

This year the theme is “Bringing America Home” so we’re asking people like you to bring a book home to learn about homelessness and then join us for community events to learn how you can join us ensuring that everyone has a safe, decent, affordable place to call home.

We would love to have you, your colleagues, and your family participate in some of the events scheduled for the week.  Or, if you’re near a Buncombe County, AB Tech, UNCA, or Warren Wilson Library, stop in and ask the librarian about homelessness – they’re ready for you!
