The University of Central Florida is doing its part in Orlando as its Rollins College campus does its part in the fight against hunger during the National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week with a march featuring hundreds of purple clad activists. This is only one demonstration of the community's drive to “serve 100 ways,” and more events are planned for the week.
Students from the University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Valencia and Florida A&M University joined advocates for the poor and homeless Friday morning in a march through the streets of downtown Orlando.
If you were in the neighborhood, you saw a lot of chilly people wearing purple and carrying signs.
As part of National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, the Orlando marchers gathered at 7:30 a.m. at the Lake Eola Bandshell and spent the next couple of hours walking along East Washington Street, Central Boulevard, Orange Avenue and South Street.
