The 1996 Hunger Cleanup Manual.
Miles, Julie A.
This manual provides basic information to help organize a "Hunger Cleanup." Written for the 1996 campaign, the publication contains an overall organizing plan, descriptions and responsibilities of different committees, a sample time line, general advice from previous "Hunger Cleanup" organizers, and appendices which can be reproduced or used as a model for other materials. Suggestions are given for goal-setting, recruitment, fund-raising, work projects, reflection, media, publicity, and awards. The "Annual Hunger Cleanup" is a national, one day, community service work-a-thon in which students volunteer to raise money for programs for the hungry and homeless. Volunteer projects include painting local shelters, planting community gardens, and refurbishing low-income housing units. Money raised through the work-a-thon benefits local, national, and international hunger and homelessness programs. (EH)
