WHAT IS HUNGER CLEAN-UP?
In 1989 Hunger Clean-Up began as students' modest effort to combat hunger and homelessness in Milwaukee.
25 YEARS LATER
Hunger Clean-Up has grown to be Marquette’s largest day of service- bringing together approximately 1,500 individuals to volunteer with over 50 agencies each April. This stage is set by a dedicated team of student leaders committed to service who work in the fall and spring to mobilize their peers while increasing awareness, support, and resources for local programs addressing issues of poverty. That’s being the difference!
Hunger Clean-Up leaders spend a lot of time fundraising-- but why? Some of the funds raised pays for transportation, tools, etc. But most of it goes on to do great things in our community!
Each year, Hunger Clean-Up leaders select three community agencies to recieve a $3000 grant to support their work or start a new project. These agencies are presented with a check at the Hunger Clean-Up kickoff.
