Walk for the Homeless

04/28/2011

For the fourth year in a row, students at Connecticut College have organized the Walk for the Homeless in New London. All proceeds from the April 30 walk will benefit the New London Homeless Hospitality Center, which provides shelter and support services for hundreds of people in Southeastern Connecticut who need temporary or long-term assistance. The 1.5-mile walk begins at the New London Homeless Hospitality Center, 19 Jay St. in New London. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and costs $15 for individuals and $13 per person for groups of five. The walk begins at 10 a.m. The students who plan the annual walk are in the Certificate Program in the College's Holleran Center for Community Action and Public Policy, a multidisciplinary academic center that advances teaching, learning, research and community collaborations in order to create more just and equitable communities. The Program in Community Action helps students become active and responsive citizens as they integrate classroom studies in the liberal arts with experiential learning in local and global communities.
