LHS Key Club kicks off Homelessness Awareness Week

LACONIA — The Laconia High School Key Club is currently taking part in Homelessness Awareness week, which runs annually from November 18 to 22.

To help raise awareness of homelessness the Key Club members are conducting a canned food and paper goods drive. Local members of the community can drop items in boxes located at LRGH, the Laconia Public Library and the Bank of New Hampshire.

The Key Club will kick off a weekend of volunteering on Friday, November 22 as they sleep out on the front lawn of Laconia High School in cardboard boxes donated by the Gilford Lowes. This act is intended to make the community more aware of the hardships homeless members of the community have to face. Roadside donations in front of the high school are greatly appreciated, as all money collected will go towards Saint Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army.
In addition to sleeping out on the Friday night, Key Club members will be at Vista from 8 a.m. until noon collecting additional canned goods and monetary donations to benefit the cause.
