Social Work and Gerontology students were on hand Tuesday during “Project Homeless Connect” at the River’s Edge Convention Center with gift bags of shampoo, soap, toys for children, and gift cards bought with the donations from their GoFundMe page, a silent auction, and t-shirt sales.

St. Cloud State students have been involved in Project Homeless Connect since 2013 when a public relations campaigns class worked with the United Way to break down stereotypes about homelessness and poverty.
