RE: JHU Habitat for Humanity Boxfest
WHEN: Note: This event has been re-scheduled for Friday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m., at the same location.
WHERE: "The Beach" and Keyser Quadrangle (also known as the upper quad)
Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus
3400 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21218

A corrugated campground will spring up from the Homewood campus when undergraduates forgo a night in their residence halls to increase awareness of homelessness in America. In exchange for a fall night under the stars, students will collect pledges from sponsors to benefit JHU Habitat for Humanity. The group organizes weekly trips to Sandtown in west Baltimore, where students help build houses for low- income families. The idea is not only to raise money, but also to gain a better appreciation for the lives of homeless people. Visitors to "Boxfest" will see an assortment of oversized boxes (think refrigerator boxes) dotting the Keyser Quadrangle, the green between Gilman Hall and the library, and "the Beach," the grassy slope below the library facing the intersection of North Charles and 34th streets. For information or to cover this event, contact Audrey DiMauro at 215-720-5951.
