 The idea:

To be the eyes, hands, and heart of Jesus in our community and the world.
To spend a night learning about what it might be like to be homeless.
To raise money for VALLEY YOUTH HOUSE* which helps abandoned, abused and homeless youth.

 
 Schedule:

Arrive at 6pm (eat supper at home), participate in various activities from 6pm-12 midnight to learn about homelessness and poverty. (Yeah, it’s fun too, no worries.) We will try to stay outside all night, weather permitting. However, if people need to go inside to sleep that will be arranged. Our goal is to raise awareness and money, not to get everyone sick.
