What is Homeless for a night? Homeless for a night is to bring awareness to the life of a homeless person. We will have activities, guest speakers, and a movie to educate everyone about this cause You will sleep outside with the blankets and clothes you bring, you will be provided soup, crackers, water, and hot chocolate; just as a homeless shelter might provide.
Benefit All items and funds will be donated to Philip’s Wish to give to those in need. "Mom, is everybody warm?" Because of a little boys question thousands of people have been blessed with the gift of blankets, coats, gloves, toiletries and toys. With your help, Phillip's Wish - to ensure that no one will be cold or uncared for - can become a reality.
