[NEWS] How to Be More Civically Engaged This November and December
In support of Veterans and Military Appreciation Week, the Office of Veteran Student Services, the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement, Commuter Student Association and the Veterans Task Force joined forces to provide support for the Hub of Hope, a partnership between the City of Philadelphia, SEPTA, and Project HOME. The new Hub of Hope offers a safe place where people can enjoy a warm cup of coffee, take a shower and wash laundry, and speak to peers or case managers to begin the process of finding a permanent home. It creates even greater opportunities to connect individuals experiencing homelessness to treatment, medical care and ultimately stable, supportive housing. Drexel University will be continuing collection efforts through Jan. 7. Donations may be dropped off Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement at 3210 Cherry St.
