Friday, November 2

That’s when we get together to freeze our collective tuckuses off this year. We do it every 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 2018! We’re gonna have an auction, a box contest, maybe even a movie if the weather holds! Hey, we’re in the news!
