The first Friday in November. That’s when we get together to freeze our collective tuckuses off ever year. Did you know that there were around 250 or 300 homeless people in Siouxland on any given day last year? There are entire families living on the streets. Women, children. It’s not a good situation. Another little-known fact is that slightly over 25% of Siouxland’s homeless are veterans, ranging from those who served in Vietnam to the Iraq/Afghanistan war. Realizing this, off to the park went the volunteers last November. They took pledges, packed up their tents (and cardboard boxes in a few cases) and away they went. It was such a success that they’re going to do it again in 2020! We’re gonna have an auction and a box contest, all sorts of stuff! If you want you can read all about us HERE.

What You Can Do

The problem of homelessness in the Sioux City area can feel overwhelming.

Participate

Many people will be volunteering to spend a night at Cone Park this November 6th. Please join us, either in person or virtually!

Sponsor
