On October 3rd the Teen Interfaith Council had its first planning meeting for 2018-2019 school year. After much discussion the Council decided to focus on a blanket drive to benefit the homeless population in Santa Clara County. There are over 7000 homeless individuals in Santa Clara County and many people sleep outside along the freeways or along the Guadalupe River that runs through San Jose. The Council will have collection sites at a local Mosque, Sikh Gurdwara, and places of worship. Members of each faith tradition will also be invited to help out.
