A group of University of Northern Colorado students will seek food and cash donations Friday while they spend the night outdoors to raise awareness of the homeless in the Greeley area and help those recently homeless due to flooding.
Around 25 students will participate in the third-annual project, dubbed "Operation Hibernation" and organized by members of UNC's United Black Government student organization.
Donations will be accepted from 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, through 8 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, outside the Marcus Garvey Cultural Center, intersection of 20th St. and 10th Avenue.
A list of food items the group needs includes canned goods and non-perishable items such as canned meat or tuna, canned fruits and vegetables, soups and stews, pasta, peanut butter and juices. Monetary donations will also be accepted.
