Shanty Town is our annual summer fund raiser for Habitat for Humanity. The dates for this year's event is Friday, August 19 & 20. Through this event we raise awareness & funds for our local Habitat for Humanity. This event is open to all middle school & high school students. Students collect pledges for sleeping outdoors in there shanty.
On that Friday afternoon students build a cardboard shanty that they will spend the night in (outside) in the elements to help give an idea of what many homeless people deal with on a daily basis. We provide a simple soup supper & end the evening with group building activities & a movie.
