During the Summit Youth Centres Box City (the night of Saturday, October 10th) local teens, parents and youth centre staff help build shelters made out of cardboard boxes at Pothole Park to sleep in overnight, to bring awareness to what the homeless experience. We say that, if at any point, some of them want to go home, thats kind of the point, said Summit Youth Centre program co-ordinator Kelsey Prichard. It just shows that for some people thats not an option for them.
