Freezin' for a Reason to bring awareness of homelessness and hunger

The Minot State University Student Social Work Organization is sponsoring “Freezin’ for a Reason” Nov. 8 at Marketplace Foods on Broadway (1930 South Broadway, Minot), 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

“The MSU SSWO is very excited for its 12th annual Freezin’ for a Reason. This year, we added the YWCA as a beneficiary in addition to the Minot Area Homeless Coalition,” said Jenelle Williams, event organizer. “Many people are in need.”

The participants stand in the cold and “freeze” to experience homelessness firsthand. Individuals can participate by dropping off food or monetary contributions at the parking lot or by “freezing” with the MSU SSWO members. MSU SSWO holds the event to raise awareness of area homelessness and to collect non-perishable and monetary donations. For questions about the Minot event, contact Dionne Spooner, MSU SSWO faculty advisor, at 858-3142 or  or SSWO members at
