Week of Hunger & Homelessness

Hunger and Homelessness Week 2015 - Pepperdine University

Every year the Pepperdine Volunteer Center participates in the The National Week of Hunger & Homelessness. This year the PVC has partnered with various student organizations to present a week filled with activities to educate the student body, inspire continued acts of service, and bring a greater awareness to the social needs of greater Los Angeles and the world around us. Join us as we bring the campus together in a united call to advocacy, justice, and service.
