Every spring, campuses nationwide unite to address the problems of hunger and homelessness by participating in one of the largest student-driven days of service – the annual Hunger Cleanup. For the Cleanup, students hold a day of service in their community to benefit local agencies that fight poverty. Students also spend the weeks leading up to the Cleanup raising funds to provide local, national and international poverty relief organizations with the resources to fight poverty.
Over its twenty-six year history, the Cleanup has made a significant impact, involving over 150,000 volunteers and raising more than $2 million for local, national, and international hunger and homelessness relief efforts. This year, students will join together to raise $100,000 to fight domestic and international poverty.
