On February 19th, Care For Friends is hosting its largest fundraiser of the year; their 6th Annual Sleepout for Homelessness.
Over 86,000 Chicagoans have no place to call home each night – including over 18,000 CPS Students. This year, as the rest of the city sheltered in place from Coronavirus, more homeless folks than ever showed up at Care For Friends, looking for help.
This winter, they invite you to join them in showing your support by helping them to KEEP THE HOME FIRES BURNING for them.
Attendees will gather in person and online at 7pm to light the campfire that traditionally starts their Sleepout for Homelessness. But this year, instead of sleeping around that fire for 12 hours, they will carry it out into the city, where their friends and supporters are committing to keeping a candle lit in their window until midnight, showing that when we all work together, we can make the world a brighter and warmer place for the most vulnerable.
This year is going to look a bit different due to the pandemic, and they're partnering with Casatis on unique ways for the community to support CFF and a local, family owned restaurant, while enjoying a delicious & healthy Italian feast!
