Abstract

There are many people suffering everyday, who are unable to get the resources they need due to lack of money, transportation, and other factors. Even in Aurora, 13.1% of its population, which is about 26,325 people, live below the poverty line. It is plausible to conclude that it may be difficult to ensure that these people have all of the basic necessities that they should have. This is where Caring for the Less Cared For comes in. Caring for the Homeless is a program that will work with the Illinois Math and Science Academy using volunteers to assemble packages with essential items such as tissues, socks, toilet paper, list of different and more. We also would set up separate packages for different genders. Once these packages are ready to go, we can drop them off at local shelters and local businesses to distribute to those who they believe may need it. This serves to help those who are struggling financially, and it also helps form a connection between the school and the local community.
