More than 90 Lancaster county youth slept in cardboard boxes at the Lancaster County Fairgrounds Friday night, Sept. 25.
Though rains swept through the area, the “Spend A Night in A Box” event continued. The event, sponsored by the Lancaster Area Coalition for the Homeless, sought to help raise awareness about the experience of being homeless.
