Event Details

Could you survive a month living in poverty?

For many, it is hard to imagine life without the necessary resources needed to survive. Its even harder to understand the stress associated with the challenges related to poverty.

Walk in the shoes of those familiar with these experiences and spend a simulated month in poverty. This interactive poverty simulation exercise conducted by COTS allows participants to experience the issues faced by families and individuals living in poverty. This experience will create a sense of empathy and will encourage participants to embrace a greater social responsibility. 

This is a free event but registration is required.

Tuesday, April 30th, 6 pm - 9 pm (dinner served from 5:45-6:30)

But most of all, we provide hope.
