2016 Cardboard City - Homeless Awareness

2016 Cardboard City - Homeless Awareness

ROOF members and community volunteers will be participating in a Cardboard City to raise awareness and support for the homeless programs and participants in Somerset County.  Volunteers will be faced with the reality of sleeping in a cardboard box for one night in inclement weather.  Join us at St. Paul's UCC Church for an eye opening experience!
 
Sponsored By: Roofs Over Our Families
 
When: June 17, 2016; 6:00PM - 6:00AM
 
Where: St. Paul's UCC Church, 202 West Union Street, Somerset, PA 15501
 
All participants will be issued a cardboard box donated by Lowes & Sears.  Participants are allowed to bring the following items:
Sleeping Bag/Blankets
Pillow
Extra Clothes
 
** All participants will be asked to leave their phone inside the church throughout the night.  Each participant will be given a care package at the beginning of their participation.  No one will be allowed to order food, bring computers, phones, etc..  The goal is to keep the simulation as real as possible. **
