Saturday, Oct. 9
Hundreds of area residents will be sleeping outside Saturday, Oct. 9, at Wade Stadium in an effort to raise donations to aid the homeless in our community.
Night Without a Home Sleep Out and Fundraiser will include a homelessness demo along with music and many great speakers. Funds and items collected by participants will benefit the more than 500 homeless in our community at the Project Homeless Connect event to be held at the Washington Center on Oct. 28.
A Night Without a Home asks participants not just to learn about homelessness but to be part of the solution to raise awareness of homelessness in our own community by sleeping outside for a night. The event is also intended to raise donations that will help those in our community who don’t yet have the option of a warm bed. Participants will be joined by a group of speakers featuring residents who have experienced homelessness, faith leaders, and community leaders.
