Tent City

As part of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, FIFTY Champlain College students signed up to participate in "Tent City," a week-long on-campus student-led service project designed to simulate homelessness and raise money for Burlington's COTS (Committee on Temporary Shelter) program. Here's some footage of their work.

Once again, thanks to Rob Williams for the footage and to the students who donate their time and energy to helping all of us realize how fortunate we are.

Thank you, Rob Williams. And thanks to the generosity of Champlainers and the dedication of 50+ students, already $400 has been raised for COTS Homeless Prevention Fund. And that does not even count the 50-50 match promised by an anonymous member of the Champlain community. Who knows how many conversation are happening in classrooms and res halls.....we bear witness to those around us....and we can make a difference.
