Hearts for the homeless

STUDENTS ON TWO CAMPUSES  abandoned their dormitories for one night to get a glimpse into the experiences of America’s estimated 850,000 homeless people.
In Rochester Hills, Mich., about 30 Rochester College students and faculty participated in the college’s annual Shack-A-Thon.
Participants built shelters out of basic materials, some donated by Home Depot, and tried to keep warm as temperatures dipped below 30 degrees. The event raised more than $3,500 for the Rochester Area Neighborhood House, a nonprofit that supports struggling families.
In Henderson, Tenn., students in the Populations at Risk class at Freed-Hardeman University spent the night in the university’s commons to increase awareness of homelessness in West Tennessee.
