NEW: Registration is now open for Sleep Out Saturday 2023, happening Nov. 4 at Celebration! This special annual event raises money for Bridge Communities, which provides assistance to unhoused individuals and families in DuPage County.
In 2022, more than 2,000 students were reported as without stable housing in DuPage County. Raising $250 will provide housing and services to a family for one week!
We will meet at Celebration at 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, to set up our boxes and/or tents. We will then head over to College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn to participate in the Sleep Our Saturday Rally at 6:30 p.m. After the rally, we'll return to Celebration for games and activities and a night sleeping outside. In the morning, we'll have breakfast before everyone heads home.
You can sign up and start collecting donations at the link below. Be sure when you sign up to "JOIN AN EXISTING GROUP" to search for "Our Saviour's Lutheran Church - Ignition." Once your registration is accepted, you can personalize a fundraising page if you wish. There is no cost to participate, but we do ask that everyone try to raise a minimum of $50 for Bridge Communities. All participants will receive a wool hat to wear that night!
Sign up and bring a friend! Hope to see you on Saturday, Nov. 4! REGISTER HERE.
