On October 7, University of Saint Francis students will construct cardboard “shanties” as a visual representation of the struggles of homelessness. Shanty Town will be located just east of the Hutzell Fitness Center along Leesburg Road and will be manned from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.


Students are asking members of the community to drop off donations of canned and non-perishable food items to benefit USF’s Feed the Fort campaign as well as gently used coats and blankets to benefit the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission.

For more information, please contact Carianne Meng at 260-399-7700, ext. 6750 or

The University of Saint Francis, founded in 1890, is a comprehensive university in the Catholic Franciscan tradition, offering undergraduate and graduate programs to more than 2,100 students from a broad geographic region.
