The PNEC 2018 Sleep Out for Homelessness
(for Youth Grades 7th – 12th)
At Forks UCC, 4500 Sullivan Trail, Stockertown, PA
Saturday, September 29 at 6pm – Sunday, September 30 at 9am
Arrive 6pm (eat supper at home), participate in various activities from 6pm-12 midnight to learn about homelessness and poverty. (Yeah, it’s fun too, no worries.) We will try to stay outside all night, weather permitting. However, if people need to go inside to sleep that will be arranged. Our goal is to raise awareness and money, not to get everyone sick.
