Sleep-in-a-box: where to find a box

Tonight is Sleep-in-a-Box. There is a slight chance of snow in the forecast, so students are advised to bring coats and hats. Participants will most likely be moved to the gym, but students should still bring their boxes and everything they may need to sleep outside. Reminder that students will not be excused from any classes tomorrow regardless of how late they stay up. There is an early release tomorrow. Students are encouraged to remember that they are doing this for a good cause. All the money that has been raised will go to the Shalom House to benefit homeless men.

Here are three places where students can find boxes. Students must be aware that they have to notify a manager or employee in the appliance department before they come to pick up a box. The best time to call is in the morning before the boxes are recycled. If you call after lunch time they will have already recycled the boxes so make sure you check in with a manager before then. Below are three store locations and store hours:
