CALPIRG Hosts Annual Hunger Cleanup Event
The UCI CALPIRG chapter hosted its annual Orange County Hunger Cleanup on April 24 at various shelters across Orange County.
Volunteer projects included building houses, making dinner for the homeless and removing trash from local waterways.
In addition to the volunteering, UCI students are working to raise $3,000 to fight hunger and homelessness locally, nationally and internationally.
Half of the funds raised will be donated to the Casa Teresa House which helps homeless mothers and children transcend into stable living while the rest will benefit CALPIRG’s national efforts.
