Among the participants in Box City, a local event to raise awareness of the homeless population in Williamsport, was the Sigma Pi fraternity chapter at Penn College. During the Nov. 3 gathering on Lycoming College’s intramural field, participants built their own cardboard structures in which to stay for the night, learning firsthand about hunger and homelessness. The fundraiser benefits Saving Grace Shelter and Family Promise of Lycoming County.
