Save the Date! Sleep Out Saturday is November 3

July 2, 2018

SOS 2018 Save the DateWhat will you be doing the first weekend in November? Participating in Sleep Out Saturday, we hope!  On November 3rd, 2018, Bridge Communities will be hosting the 15th annual Sleep Out Saturday. Join us as we come together as a community to connect homeless families to a better future.

Sleep Out Saturday is a way for you to experience the hardships faced by homeless families before they found the safety of Bridge Communities. Become vulnerable and uncomfortable for one night only to help prove we are not forgetting local homeless children and neighbors. It is time to join forces and strengthen your commitment to helping the homeless in our community.

Sleep Out Saturday brings groups of all kinds and of all ages to experience a night of homelessness by spending a chilly night sleeping out in parking lots, parks and backyards.  Individuals, families, youth groups and clubs in the Chicagoland area are all welcome to join the overnight event. Bridge Communities will provide a toolkit with age-appropriate activities to make your sleep out educational and meaningful, too. The all-night event will give you, your family and your friends a whole new outlook on what it is like to be homeless and how you can make a difference.

Every penny raised from the event will support homeless families in the Bridge Communities program, funding the housing, employment training, mentoring, case management, plus tutoring and summer camps for kids. We thank YOU for transforming their lives.

     Join the Sleep Out Saturday movement today! You can change the life of a homeless family by signing up for Sleep Out Saturday 2018 at www.sleepoutsaturday.org. For questions, contact Bridge’s Director of Community Engagement Chad Pedigo at 630-403-5095 or chad.pedigo@bridgecommunities.org.
