What is the Big Sleep Out? The Big Sleep Out is an awareness project that aims to spread consideration for the cause of homelessness by “sleeping out” on the Green in order to experience a night without a home. The evening will also consist of activities, some educational, and some hands on, and a traditional Columbus House meal. Sign up alone or in teams. Sleep Out for the entire night, or almost sleep out (attend presentations/ workshops and meal, but don’t sleep over on the Green). All ages welcome! Youth groups with members not yet in high school must be accompanied by at least one adult. Each person will get a schedule/ map packet with a blank space for earning sleep out stamps:
Participating in activities will result in earning stamps
Participants must use their stamps to “pay” for their meal
Where does the event take place? Sleep on the Guilford Green, a meal will be served in the St. George Church Hall, and presentations/workshops will take place in the faith communities around the Green.
