Benefit for homeless canceled…due to weather

by mcastellon on February 21, 2006

An event to raise funds for people who have to sleep in the cold was canceled because it was cold:

… the second annual “Homeless in the Park” event scheduled to be held by Alpha Delta Pi and Pi Kappa Alpha Greek organizations of Southeast Missouri State University. The event which would have included 150 men and women spending the day without food and water in an effort to raise money for the Salvation Army was canceled due to the snow.

“It was snowing last night so we didn’t know if we were going to do it, and when we woke up this morning the conditions were a little horrendous so we decided to call it off,” said Pi Kappa Alpha president Brent Jackson.

In short, the day was too cold to be homeless.

“I don’t want to sound like that, but it really was,” said Jackson.

Words escape me.
