Freezin’ for a Reason brings awareness of homelessness, hunger

 The Minot State University Student Social Work Organization is sponsoring “Freezin’ for a Reason” Nov. 14 in the Marketplace Foods’ parking lot (1620 South Broadway, Minot), 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

“MSU SSWO is very excited for its 13th annual Freezin’ for a Reason. It is a way to raise awareness of the difficulties the homeless face, especially in winter,” said Hannah-Ruth Patterson, event organizer. “This year, we added Community Action Partnership-Minot Region as a beneficiary in addition to the Minot Area Homeless Coalition. Many people are in need.”

MSU SSWO members 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. Other MSU student organizations, such as the Beta Theta Sorority, are joining MSU SSWO members. For questions about the Minot event, contact Dionne Spooner, MSU SSWO faculty advisor, at 858-3142 or  or SSWO members at
