Friday, Nov. 1
Living in a Box is a 12-hour fund-raising project for WATTS (Winchester Area Temporary Thermal Shelter). Sign up to participate, or give money to a participant so he/she can “buy” supplies. The goal of “Living in a Box” is to raise enough funds so that meals can be purchased for WATTS for many years to come; ideally, Shenandoah students want to raise $5,000. “Living in a Box” participants agree to spend a night outside in a cardboard box for what may be a very cold, very damp 12 hours. Each participant – students, faculty and staff members – will start with a T-shirt, shorts, socks, a water bottle and shoes. They can bring other items such as hats, scarves, blankets, pillows, jackets and cell phones only if they’ve raised the appropriate amount of money. For example, a hat requires a $2 donation. Sweatpants require a $10 donation. And, any participant who wants to use a tent instead of a box must collect $20. Contact the Office of Spiritual Life at spirituallife@su.edu
