Student raises funds and awareness for homeless

by | Dec 19, 2013 | Other News

Since he was a toddler, Caleb Peck has been sensitive to the plight of homelessness. In fact, after his first encounter with someone less fortunate, he began asking questions about why this happens to some people and how it can be made better.

Now, he has taken action. Caleb hopes to raise money and awareness through the sale of his t-shirt design at Each t-shirt costs $20. Proceeds from these sales will benefit Congregation Beth El in Norfolk when it hosts its week of the N.E.S.T. Program (Norfolk Emergency Shelter Team) in January, an annual effort to provide shelter and meals for those in need. This program is hosted throughout January by local churches and synagogues.

If Caleb meets his goal of selling 150 t-shirts, Beth El will receive $1,650 towards the expenses to host a week of N.E.S.T.
