Materials collected during move-in weekend's Cardboard Shuffle will go for a good cause before they're recycled: About 120 people are expected to spend the night in cardboard houses on campus Saturday night to raise awareness about substandard housing in Athens County.

The Athens County and Ohio University Habitat for Humanity organizations and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity will host the Cardboard City on the Morton Hall parking lot from 7 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday. Businesses, teams and individuals can participate.

"Teams really have fun and get creative during the event," said Cita Strauss of Athens County Habitat for Humanity. "It is a wonderful expression and a great way to raise awareness for the organization and substandard housing."

Teams were asked to collect donations for the event, and all funds raised will go toward building Habitat homes in Athens County. Additional participants are welcome to take part with a minimum donation of
$20 and tours of the Cardboard City will be given for a donation of any
amount. Teams with the most donations and the most impressive cardboard house will be recognized. 

For more information on the Cardboard City, contact Strauss at 740-592-0032.
