Donations sought to aid others during homeless count

Point in time count

Shown in January 2020, Jacksonville State University students make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to give out to the homeless before they hit the streets for that year's head count.

Anniston city officials are asking for donations that they can distribute to area homeless persons during an upcoming count of that population in Calhoun and Etowah counties. 

Known as a “point-in-time” count, the annual tally is mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the data being helpful toward determining the need for future funding and services.
