The St. Petersburg Free Clinic will host six students at its overnight and transitional shelters for this year's Notre Dame Urban Plunge.
During the Jan. 7-8 event, students will learn about the issues of poverty from the front lines. They will sleep in shelters and have the opportunity to discuss the cause and effect of homelessness with staff and residents. The Free Clinic is at 863 Third Ave. N and provides assistance for people in need of food, shelter, health care and referral information.
