SleepOUT for Shelter will start on March 28th at 10 pm and end on March 29th at 7 am. This event will be held at Shelter House (420 George St.) in the courtyard.
This interactive experience allows participants to experience homelessness first hand. SleepOUT allows individuals to immerse themselves into the lives of Thunder Bay's homeless population by spending the night outside, as many do every day.
Hear stories and experiences from individuals with experiences of being homeless.
All funds raised through this event will go directly to continuing our programs helping us support the men, women, and youth in our community living in poverty and homelessness every year.
Each participant commits to:
Fundraising a minimum of $100.00 for individuals and $400.00 for teams to SleepOUT. A prize will be awarded to the top individual fundraiser and the top fundraising team will be recognized for their contributions.
What you will need:
Two items of your choosing
Each participant will receive:
A Nighttime Survival Kit (includes: Sandwiches, Water & Pastries)
