Kansas University’s chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity will host its semi-annual TKE in a Box charity event on Friday.
For 48 hours, fraternity members will live in a cardboard box house in front of Hy-Vee, 3504 Clinton Parkway, to collect canned food and cash donations for the homeless. Fraternity members will be at the store from noon Friday until noon Sunday.
Food donations will benefit ECKAN’s Just Food pantry and cash donations will benefit the Lawrence Community Shelter.
During the past two years, the fraternity has raised more than $3,000 in food and monetary donations for the homeless.
