HomeAid San Diego Homelessness Awareness Month Wrap-Up

HomeAid San Diego designated the month of November as Homelessness Awareness Month to help bring attention to those experiencing hunger and homelessness in San Diego County.

To prepare the public for this month long awareness campaign, we designed our first ever November ‘Giving Calendar’ entitled ’30 Ways in 30 Days to Give,’ in partnership with organizations committed to fighting hunger and homelessness in our area.

Each day of the November ‘Giving Calendar’ highlights an idea on how to get involved and long-lasting ways to give back.

Events that took place during Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Month:

  • Brookfield Residential sponsored a week-long donation drive for HomeAid San Diego to collect items sure to keep homeless families and children warm this winter.
  • Turner Construction surprised residents of Alpha Project in Vista, California with donuts.  Read more.
  • C2-Imaging gave thanks to homeless veterans at Interfaith Community Services with a catered lunch.  Read more.
  • Residents of Noah Homes banded together to assemble more than 500 ‘Care-Kits’ for Interfaith Community Services’s new year-round emergency shelter, Haven House in Escondido, California.  Read more.

On our blog, we featured daily posts from our hunger and homeless service provider partners and supporters, to discuss some of the diverse needs and unique challenges hungry and homeless populations face. Visit our blog to read over all of the great posts from our friends dealing in hunger and homelessness.

Our campaign culminated on December 1st, also known as, #GivingTuesday. Thank you to all of the organizations and individuals who participated in this month-long event and made a donation to HomeAid San Diego in support of our mission to end homelessness through our Housing Development Program. See our complete list of donors here!
