Homeless for a Night Collects Over 50 Blankets
October 9, 2019
The Glasgow High School Leadership class held their annual homeless for a night fundraiser on Oct. 5. This year the crew collected blankets and cash donations. The blankets went to help the homeless and the cash donations are to be given to Jackie Bird to assist with deployed service member care packages.
For the evening, the students built small shelters out of cardboard boxes and then tested them against the elements. They kids nested down like penguins around an egg. The class had planned to do the night the week before, but wet and cold weather forced them to reschedule. According to the class instructor Rod Karst, the crew collected over 50 blankets and raised a few hundred dollars.
