Annual Sleepout for the Homeless

November 16, 2018 ; 3:30 pm to 8:00 am
First United Methodist Church - 135 W. Simpson St, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055
Members of community youth groups will hold their Annual Sleepout for the Homeless Friday to Saturday, Nov. 16 to 17. Beginning at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, the church parking lot will be transformed into a community of boxes, where the teenagers will spend the night. The teens will accept donations from the community throughout the evening. All proceeds will benefit local agencies dedicated to helping those experiencing homelessness. Last year's event raised nearly $4,000. In addition to money, the Sleepout is meant to raise awareness. Participants will get a small but firsthand taste of what it is like to be homeless, and hopefully develop a lifelong passion to help others.
