SleepOUT for Youth, Fri. Nov. 28

Over 1000 young people in our city will spend the coldest, darkest, and harshest months of the year with no place to call home. On November 28-29, 2014 we are asking for your help to raise critical funds and valuable awareness for homeless youth. Help us make a difference and come SleepOUT for Youth! On Fri. Nov. 28 we will meet at Dovercourt at 6:30PM and put together our sleeping arrangements in the back field. Bring a sleeping bag, tent, a layer of clothes or whatever items you feel will support you in staying out the entire night. There will be a variety of activities and events throughout the evening to help pass the time. There may even be warm beverages and food to help keep us warm! Heck, there’s even a campfire! On Saturday morning, Nov 29th, we will head inside and enjoy some warm breakfast and drinks. To join or support, go to the Dovercourt sleepout page and select JOIN MY TEAM. Enter in your details and set a personal fund raising goal! Contact Mark at mbond@dovercourt.org with any questions.
