ATΩ Raises Money for Homeless

Taylor Isaac, Student Reporter / October 4, 2022

Days spent in the cold—hungry and without shelter—are the harsh reality for people affected by homelessness across Cabell County.  Often these people do not know where their next meal will come from or where they will rest their head at night. 

With the aftershocks of the COVID-19 pandemic still lingering, many Huntingtonians are homeless or at risk of being homeless in the very near future. To raise awareness of this issue, one of Marshall’s fraternities created an unusual display as their annual philanthropy from Sept. 26 to Sept. 30.

A large, cardboard house was constructed in the Memorial Student Center Plaza by Marshall’s Alpha Tau Omega (ATΩ) fraternity. For 24 hours, members sheltered outside to demonstrate the daily struggles of people affected by homelessness.
