Global Poverty Club
The Elmhurst College Global Poverty Club aims to alleviate the scourge of poverty by enhancing awareness, raising money and showing people what they can do to help. The year-old student organization founded by senior Dan Zarlenga, last fall sponsored a week-long program, Poverty Week, to educate the community on ways it can lessen the suffering caused by poverty. The club has scheduled a Poverty Walk for May, that is also aimed at raising awareness.
