The Sleep Out fundraising campaign launches Thursday, Nov. 12 with a Virtual Sleep Out Kickoff leading up to a Community Sleep Out (or in) on Saturday, Nov. 14. This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sleep Out will look a bit different. Interfaith Outreach is inviting individuals, families, friends and faith communities to sleep out (or in) in the safety of their own social “bubble,” choosing an outdoor or indoor environment that is safe and secure, and following state COVID-19 safety protocols.
Watch and share the 25 stories launched daily for 25 days from Nov. 12-Dec. 6.
The “Be Like Bob Challenge” provides options for people to choose take-action challenges to help raise a goal of $2.6 million by Dec. 31. People can take the “Be Like Bob Challenge” and choose one or more ways to get involved: iocp.org/belikebob
