Senior Jason Bouwens, 17, takes a break after setting up his ‘shanty’ during BFA-St. Albans’ Annual Shanty Night. Members of the National Honor Society spent the night under the stars using only cardboard, tarps and duct tape in an effort to better understand and raise awareness for homelessness in the area. The honor society raised more then $3,000 this year and has donated more than $10,000 since 2011 to Samaritan House.
