A Night to end homelessness
7 pm Friday November 10 until 7 am Saturday November 11, 2017
Grace Church of the Nazarene in Eureka
On any given night in our community there are men, women and children who do not spend the night in their own homes. They stay with friends and relatives, in shelters, and in cars. This new event gives us an opportunity to raise awareness of homelessness and participants will be able to experience a bit of what it might be like to be outside, overnight, living in a car.
The event will include educational presentations on homelessness and the challenges it poses for our society.
You provide your own car! Teams are welcome! Gather your friends, co-workers and church members together. Each vehicle is asked to raise a minimum of $1000. Prizes to top fundraisers and top teams!
Register your vehicle by October 20th to ensure you receive a "I survived a Night in a Car" t-shirt.
Are YOU up to the challenge?
Homelessness in our community exists! In 2016, our Heart House shelter served 36 people (7 were children). These individuals were fleeing homelessness and/or domestic violence. On average, people stay from 3 - 6 months in our shelter. Help us raise awareness and raise funds to continue to have a shelter in Woodford County.
Don't worry -- there will be plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the experience. The event ends with a hot breakfast meal as a celebration on Saturday morning. Throughout the night participants will be able to warm up inside the church building and indoor restrooms will also be accessible. Come help us raise awareness and raise funds to continue to have a shelter in Woodford County.
DECEMBER -- BELL RINGING CAMPAIGN
We are able to keep 70% of our donations collected through the Salvation Army Bell Campaign to disburse through our Heartline Program which directly assists individuals and families living in Woodford County.
We ring our bell on at least 5 different days during the holiday season at several Woodford County locations. Volunteers are needed to cover 1 (or more) hour time slots throughout the holiday season. To sign up for our kettle bell ringing campaign, please go to the link below and you will see a list of times that are still available.
