The City of Milwaukee Youth Council will partner with Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee in holding a hunger drive as its Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) project. The GYSD takes place each April, engaging young people from around the world in community service, service learning and youth voice activities.
The Youth Council’s hunger drive will take place April 21-25, 2014.
The GYSD is the largest youth service event of its kind, and the Youth Council is proud to once again champion a project in Milwaukee. The hunger drive will aid in providing food to those in need through donation boxes to be placed in schools where Youth Council members attend. Hunger Task Force will provide the donation boxes and will collect the donated food items at the close of the collection.
“This hunger drive will bring together young people from across the city in service that will improve our community and hopefully inspire others to do so as well,” said Keenan Gibson, president of the Youth Council.
