Recent Events: Stevenson University "Living on the Streets"

Last Friday some of us here at the Faces of Homelessness Speakers' Bureau went to Stevenson University and got a warm welcome from their students at an event called "Living on the Streets."  Purman and Carroll spoke about their individual experiences and Laura from Project PLASE and myself (Joanna from Beans & Bread Center) spoke a bit about our organizations.  It was a fun event and the students presented us with donations for our respective organizations after we spoke.  Beans & Bread got about 125 peanut butter & jelly sandwiches which were handed out on Saturday at the meal program.  Project PLASE got loads of hygiene kits which were distributed by Laura and Carroll.  I'm posting some pictures from the event.  Again, a big THANKS to Stevenson!
