Posted on 10/7/2011 12:50:56 PM

An IUP sorority is inviting people to be part of a “cardboard city” project in the Oak Grove on October 12, 2011, from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The project is designed to raise funds for the American Red Cross to help with relief for flooded areas in Pennsylvania.

Gamma Sigma Sigma members are providing materials for people to build cardboard homes for $2 a person. In addition to raising funds for the American Red Cross, the event is intended to raise awareness about homelessness.

Donations will also be collected in front of the IUP Co-op Store. All donations can be designated to the American Red Cross in specific counties.
