5 Days for the Homeless Is Launched At The U-of-L

Lethbridge:  A group of U of L students are sleeping OUT to bring funding UP for a local homeless shelter.

  The fourth annual "Five days for the Homeless" fundraiser will see the students sleep outside the student union building, with no food or drinks, except what is donated to them.  They have a pillow and a sleeping bag but showers, and access to bathrooms only when school buildings are open.
They have also given up their cell phones, and networking media like facebook. However, they must attend classes and take care of any teaching positions.

  This year, a member of the U-of-L faculty will join them. Cheryl Meheden from the department of Management will stay over-night with the group on Wednesday, March 16th.

  Money raised from the event will go to Woods Homes, which provides emergency shelter for youth.

   Donations can be accepted in person at their outdoor home, and at tables set up in the University Hall Atrium and other locations on campus.
