Members of Kansas University’s Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity will be living in a box for 48 hours this weekend to benefit Lawrence’s homeless.

From noon on Friday until noon on Sunday, the fraternity’s cardboard home will be in front of Hy-Vee at 23rd and Kasold, where they will be taking donations for the Lawrence Community Shelter and canned food items for the E-Kan food pantry.

Over the last year, the fraternity has collected thousands of dollars in cans and donations.

And when they are finished honoring themselves, they will get in their BMW SUV that mommy & daddy bought them, and go back to their 14 bedroom mansion on campus, and party like rock stars. This is happening on a weekend when it's good for them. They are doing it in a controlled surrounding, which is good for them. They will have the store's resources available to use, which is good for them. They will have everything they need to make this as comfortable and convenient as possible, which is good for them. They get to be heroes in the eyes of their peers and the community, which is good for them. They get to walk away from being homeless like it was a school project, which is good for them. Sad part is, none of this is reality to a homeless man. He doesn't get to be a hero, he is pushed away, brushed aside, looked down upon, and shunned in the eyes of his peers. Oh yeah, this event will certainly raise awareness -- NOT !!!!! Why don't you use that higher education to do something really constructive for the homeless, like spending a weekend teaching skills to become independent peoople. Help them to get out of homelessness, not provide them with everything they need to stay that way. That would make you a hero in my eyes.
