Sleepout For Homelessness: Fire Spotters
7pm - February 16th, 2024
Lighting The Path Home
THANK YOU for supporting Care For Friends' Sleepout For Homelessness as a Fire Spotter!
At 7pm, we will be hosting a small program at 530 W. Fullerton Parkway where we will light our campfire, hear some speakers share their stories of hope, and share some smores and hot cocoa. You will receive a link to join this event virtually, in case COVID restrictions or other reasons make that a preferred way for you to participate.
As a Fire Spotter, we'd like for you to take some time on the night of the 18th thinking about how homeless folks can survive in your neighborhood. Take a picture of as many of the following items that you can find, and share the results on social media with the hashtag #CFFSleeps.
Don't forget to point friends and family to show their support by donating via your personal fundraising page on GoFundMe.
We've created a fundraising media kit that includes pre-made videos, messages, and photos all ready for you to use to solicit support. Feel free to create your own, too. Get creative!
There will be fire tenders onsite at 530 W. Fullerton from 7pm until sunrise, in case you'd like to stop by to light a candle from our bonfire, too.
