South Seneca’s Cardboard City fundraiser set

Can cardboard be insulation from the elements? The seventh annual South Seneca Middle-Senior High School “Cardboard City”, a fundraiser for Seneca County Habitat for Humanity is slated for Friday, October 26-27 on the football fields on South Street, Ovid. Starting after school on Friday the 26th, students and parents fashion one, two or more person structures out of cardboard, tarps and duct tape in hopes of staying warm overnight. Participants are asked to obtain a minimum of $30 in donations. Advisors, art teacher, Breana Copp and ELA teacher, Gertrude Shaffer co-organize the event as part of the local and global service projects that students participate in each year. One of many events during the year, each of these projects help to create awareness and eradicate the issues of poverty and homelessness. Habitat for Humanity has interviewed and built houses for students who have attended South Seneca. Since 2007, the Distance Learning Students have sponsored donations to Seneca County Habitat for Humanity totalling $5,288. Donations to Habitat for Humanity may be dropped off at the South Seneca Middle-High School office.
