Sturgeon Bay High School’s Project 180 club, an organization that helps promote healthy lifestyles within the school, has recently begun a project in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity to raise awareness of homelessness.
The Homeless Awareness Lock Out Event (H.A.L.O.) will be held on Saturday, May 11 at the back lots of Sturgeon Bay High School. Project 180 members have assembled many activities for the night to help raise awareness of homelessness. Some of them include a cardboard house building contest, silent auction, soccer games, and scavenger hunts. There will also be live music.
Sophomore Chelsea Lauder, a Project 180 member, explains the importance of the H.A.L.O. event.
"Also it's a great way to get involved in the community," says Lauder. "You are helping out Habitat for Humanity and Project 180 and all sorts of other community organizations that'll be a part of it as well."
