H.A.L.O. Hangs In There For A Chilly Night

 

Saturday’s weather didn’t stop Door County Habitat for Humanity from raising awareness of local homelessness and affordable housing needs.

The Homeless Awareness Lock Out (H.A.L.O) went on as planned at T.J. Walker Middle School, however organizers allowed participants to construct their cardboard shelters indoors or outdoors. Lydia Foss with Habitat for Humanity says those staying overnight had plenty of things to do.

Barbara Nelson and her husband Rick, Executive Director of Door County Habitat for humanity slept in a cardboard box tonight with their granddaughter Arleth. In the photo above, Arleth, left, and Barbara, right, hold the fort down while Rick searches for some bricks Saturday.

Habitat for Humanity teamed up with students in Project 180 throughout the county and spent the night in a cardboard box in return for pledges and financial support. Activities also included a silent auction, a raffle and music.
