Cardboard City at South Seneca School

Can cardboard be insulation from the elements? One hundred South Seneca Middle-High School students found out on November 4th & 5th as they built a ‘cardboard city’ under threatening skies and braved the elements overnight. Starting after school on Friday, and fighting the biting wind, students and parents fashioned one, two and four person structures in hopes of staying warm for the night. The football field was the setting for this awareness event. Participants were asked to obtain donations for the Seneca County chapter of Habitat for Humanity and the Distance Learning Trees for Tanzania project. Organizer Breana Copp, South Seneca Middle School art and distance learning teacher said, “As part of the local and global service projects that our students participate in, each of these projects/organizations help to create awareness and eradicate the issues of poverty and homelessness. Habitat for Humanity has interviewed and built houses for students who currently attend school in the school district."
