sleep out — nov. 18
Gather your neighbors and friends for a sleep out and help struggling families in our community. As part of Interfaith Outreach’s annual Sleep Out campaign (Nov. 16-Dec. 31), you can play a valuable role in raising awareness about needs in the areas of family support, food, housing and neighborhoods, education and youth, employment, and transportation in our community. Funds raised will help more than 2,000 struggling families stabilize and strengthen. Download the Sleep Out toolkit for help with planning your event and winter camping tips sure to make your sleep out is a success!
We encourage everyone who is sleeping out to schedule it for Saturday, Nov. 18. Sleep Outs will occur all over town on this one night, and your group will get to be part of the excitement of the larger community movement. If, however, you have schedule conflicts that night, pick any date from Nov. 16 to Dec. 31, preferably a Friday or Saturday night to accommodate work and school schedules.
(new!) bedless night — dec. 1-10
Bedless Night is an indoor alternative to sleeping outside designed to bring families together to explore some of the ways that our neighbors experience homelessness and raise funds to support them. This activity is perfect for families, friends and neighbors. Download the Bedless Night guide for help planning and three real-life stories of what many people who walk through our doors experience here in the west metro.
Set a date that works for your family between Dec. 1-10. Then think of you might turn to if you were experiencing homelessness and needed to double up — invite those people to join you!
