The Point In Time Count (PIT Count)
The Point In Time Count (PIT Count) is an annual census of the homeless population in the Walla Walla County area. January 23rd and 24th volunteers will count every person experiencing unsheltered homelessness. Volunteers will count people at three collection sites Thursday at St. Paul's Episcopal Church @ 11 am - 1 pm and on Friday at Sleep Center @ 8 am - 10 am and New Beginnings Church @ 11 am - 1 pm. The information from this count is used to guide public policy and is vital for securing resources to help end homelessness in our community. Will you help? A special training is going to be held on Friday January 17 at 11:30 am (it will also be recorded).

Associated Students of Walla Walla University, ASWWU, was created in May of 1914 to give students a voice on campus. ASWWU Spiritual leadership is helping to plan monthly CARE weekends. Currently ASWWU Global Services is hosting a holiday youth drive through an organization called Treehouse based in Spokane Washington. Treehouse is one of Washington’s leading organizations in supporting more than 7,000 youth in foster care. Treehouse’s goal for the community is to promote diversity and equality for youth in the foster care system. The holiday youth gift drive is one of the easiest ways you can give back: there will be boxes spread around main areas on campus where you can drop off simple gifts for the children such as toys, knit items, trinkets, etc.

Business Club is for all students, not just business majors. We understand that college is stressful, so we plan at least one fun event per week to help you de-stress and socialize without having to do anything more than show up! A service project they promote is Hope Heals assisting homeless families by providing care packages.
