Sleepout For Homelessness: Fire Spreaders
7pm - February 19th, 2021
Keep The Home Fires Burning
THANK YOU for supporting Care For Friends' Sleepout For Homelessness as a Fire Spreader!
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.
We also invite you to light a candle on the 19th, showing it in your window in solidarity with us, to shine a light of hope for all individuals who don't have a home this evening. Don't forget to share a picture or video on social media, using the hashtag #CFFSleeps!
There will be fire tenders onsite at 530 W. Fullerton from 7pm until sunrise, in case you'd like to light a candle from our bonfire as well.
And Also ...
Local businesses have had a particularly difficult time this year with pandemic-related reductions in regulations.
We've partnered with two family-owned businesses who are offering unique sleepout packages on Feburary 19th.
A portion of your purchase is tax-deductible and supports Chicago's homeless, while a portion benefits a Chicago business.
