As a teenage U.S. history student, I think we should all be trying to prevent poverty.
Poverty is the state of being extremely poor. In developing countries, it is known as destitution. Destitution is the deprivation of basic human needs, which commonly include food, water, sanitation, clothing, shelter, health care and education.
Let’s start making a difference locally. We can help these people by donating money, food and spare clothes to the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter in San Luis Obispo.
