Cardboard City Raising Awareness

PSU Altoona students camp out.
ALTOONA - Some Penn State Altoona students are spending Monday night camping, but there won't be any tents of campfires.

The "Being United for Social Transformation" group on campus is trying to raise awareness for homelessness by spending the night in cardboard boxes. The group will be outdoors from 7pm Monday night until 7am Tuesday morning. They're asking people to stop by and bring a non-perishable food item that will be donated to the local Salvation Army.

"I think when you experience it and you see tha this is their life and they ahve to do it all the time it's kind of eye-opening. Especially when you do it in the winter when it's not warm outside and it's a little chilly," PSU Altoona Senior Chrislee Clifford says.
