Spirit of Giving: Serving the Homeless in Calexico

Staff and students at SDSU Imperial Valley join local volunteers who serve hot meals every single night and see the faces behind the numbers

Staff members and students of San Diego State University Imperial Valley have been involved from the beginning.

When Maribel Padilla, an active local volunteer, put out a call in 2014 seeking help with housing the homeless, her friend Norma Aguilar was among the first to respond. Aguilar, student affairs academic advisor and coordinator for the Student Ability Success Center at SDSU Imperial Valley, persuaded the Calexico Unified School District to open up the high school gym and the like-minded volunteers brought in those seeking shelter.
