We commend the Minot Daily News in North Dakota for covering the Minot State University Student Social Work Organization’s push to raise awareness of hunger and homeless in that region. The group is trying to break the misconception that the homeless are mostly veterans living under a bridge or a person living in a box. Women and their children are the largest homeless group in the area, assistant professor of social work Deb DeWitz said. To read the full story click here.

UPDATE: Here’s a follow-up¬†news article¬†on the hunger and homeless drive.
