Duquesne Students Plan to “Stand Up” for Homeless Children

An event designed to raise awareness for The Homeless Children's Education Fund (HCEF) is planned by a class of Duquesne University students.

"The Stand Up involves participants standing in silence in the middle of campus with a mask of a homeless child to draw attention to this unseen population," said Dr. Erik Garrett, who teaches Integrated Marking Communications-Public Relations. "For four years now, students at Duquesne have partnered with the HCEF to raise awareness, money and supplies for the nearly 2,000 homeless children in Allegheny County."

When: Wednesday, April 15, from 5:10 to 5:45 p.m.

Where: Duquesne's Academic Walk, in front of Rooney Field
