by requiring them to make a shelter out of a box and sleep outside in
it. The night also consisted of activities to learn the facts about
homelessness and also hear from a representative of a local shelter.
This was a great experience for our members and allowed them to learn
about ways they could volunteer in the Columbus community. Our AZP
members personally raised $250 for the MidOhio Food Bank and would like
to contribute more by doing more activities in the future.
