The Cardboard City is an awareness fundraiser sponsored by Habitat for Humanity.

“The issue that we’re addressing is substandard housing in our region,” said Amber Mendenhall, director of community engagement. “So people donate and they volunteer their time for a couple of hours to build a cardboard house.”
This is the ninth annual cardboard city event hosted by Habitat for Humanity, but it is the first year that part of the event has been held in Hocking County, which is one of seven different service areas serviced by Habitat. So far, they have raised $4,200.
Two groups from Hocking College, one group from the Logan Rotary Club, and also a group from the Logan High School drama department all participated on Saturday April 25th, 2015. The Logan Rotary Club took home the “Most Creative” Award with their End Polio Castle design.
