Saint Mary’s students sleep outside to raise awareness of homeless (04/02/2006)
Approximately 25 Saint Mary's University students will sleep in cardboard boxes the night of Tuesday, April 4, during the annual shak-a-thon, part of Habitat for Humanity's Act!Speak!Build! Week.

A full week of activities is scheduled to raise awareness about the millions of people who do not have adequate shelter to sleep. On Monday an information table will be set up at the Toner Student Center, and information about the Jimmy Carter Place and Habitat for Humanity will be provided.

For Tuesday's shak-a-thon, SMU's Habitat for Humanity chapter will sell s'mores and luminaries ($1 for one or five for $4) as a fundraiser. A variety of events will begin at 7 p.m. in the plaza. The box houses and luminaries will remain up throughout Wednesday.

On Wednesday SMU's Habitat chapter and Peace and Justice Group will conduct a hunger banquet at 5:30 p.m. in the President's Room of the Toner Student Center. Attendees will participate in a "class" activity; certain guests will be able to eat a large meal, others may not have silverware and will have to eat on the floor. SMU students will pay with ID plus $1. The event will include a presentation by a guest speaker from the Catholic Worker House.

Additionally both SMU and Winona State University students will complete a "Walk to Rally," beginning at 5 p.m. Thursday from the WSU campus and ending at the Habitat for Humanity office downtown Winona.

The public is invited to attend any of these activities. For more information, contact Lisa Boris at 494-6083, Amy Glasgow at 457-7295 or e-mail habitat@smumn.edu.
