Wouldn’t it be great to be invisible sometimes? You could take a nap in the middle of the day and no one would bother you, or you could help prevent crime—that would be sweet.
But what if you were so invisible, you ran the risk of being forgotten? Well, one man is out to bring those invisible people back to the front of mind. Mark Horvath, founder of Invisible People, an organization dedicated to ending homelessness, will speak on campus Wednesday, Nov. 13, in Norton Chapel.
The 5 p.m. presentation is free and open to the entire College community. A Q & A session will follow.
Mark travels the country interviewing individuals experiencing homelessness in hopes to educate the public and change the story of homelessness. Mark often records these interviews and partners with YouTube to share the stories.
In addition, the Center for Spiritual Life will conduct a supply drive for Mark to bring to a local homeless encampment. A variety of items are needed for care packages, and monetary donations will also be accepted. To learn more about what items are needed, contact College Chaplain Eric Detar at [email protected] or (315) 279-5378.
The event is sponsored by several campus organizations, including Pi Theta Epsilon (PTE), the Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA), the Campus Activities Board (CAB), Circle K, Students Helping Students, and the Center for Spiritual Life (CSL).
