PULLMAN, Wash. – Each year, the Washington State University Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) invites students, staff, faculty and community members to help raise awareness on issues of poverty during the week before Thanksgiving break, November 16-22, 2014. Throughout this week, the CCE partners with several WSU departments and student groups to hold events and activities throughout the week.
All week long, the CCE will hold daily service projects open to WSU students, and food and supplies drives will take place both on and off campus in support of local community organizations. Other events include a coffee hour and potluck on November 14, a bowling tournament at Zeppoz on November 15, a letter writing campaign for St. Jude on November 16, a documentary screening on November 16, a public discussion on November 18, a bake sale for United Way on November 19, a cardboard city on November 19, as well as a variety of other events.
