The Rescue Mission’s “One Night Without a Home” is a virtual event this year due to COVID. In previous years, participants slept outside on the lawn of The Recue Mission’s Charis House in boxes or tents. The evening gives participants a small preview of the homelessness experience, while raising awareness and funds for The Rescue Mission.
This year, participants may sleep out with family or friends anywhere or at any time through November 15, 2020. Registered participants receive a care package with activities, stories, and information to make the evening memorable and fun for the whole family.
Nearly $20,000 has been raised by individuals, groups, and families for One Night 2020. Last year’s event raised more than $35,000.
Interested individuals or groups can still participate by visiting www.fwrm.org/1night20. The deadline to sleep out and raise funds is November 15th.
