St. Mary's Church of Potsdam 412 youth group held a “cardboard campout” on June 4-5. The youth built cardboard shelters and lived like homeless people to raise awareness of poverty issues in our area. This event allowed the youth to experience poverty and grow in empathy for those in a homeless situation.
