Shelter Island School’s National Honor Society members and friends braved chilly overnight temperatures from 6 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. The annual event, where students spend a night in cardboard boxes on school grounds to demonstrate the plight of the homeless, requires each participant to raise at least $100 for the nonprofit. Thanks to their abilities in past years, their contributions have exceeded minimums and students have spent one to two days on a Habitat for Humanity site helping eventual homeowners build a house that a family will occupy.

This past fall, students who are part of Shelter Island School’s National Honor Society and friends raised over $1,200 to earn their build day with Habitat For Humanity, a non-profit organization devoted to building “simple, decent, and affordable” housing for families in need. Additionally, a generous $1,000 grant from the Presbyterian Church allowed the team to shop at Home Depot and bring supplies along for the build site.
