The Lord’s Place will host its sixteenth annual SleepOut. The organization will invite participants to roll out their sleeping bags and set up their tents at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter March 31.
SleepOut 2023 will boast new activities, an uplifting program complete with powerful and moving client stories, and a candlelight ceremony. SleepOut will shine a light on those experiencing homelessness in our community—helping these most vulnerable individuals access the tools needed to create sustainable, independent lives. The event will also provide hands-on service opportunities as a way for people of all ages to give back and help the unhoused in a safe environment.
After the program, all attendees are encouraged to set up sleeping bags and tents on the outfield, or in their homes or backyards. SleepOut encourages participants to step out of the comfort of their homes for a night in a symbolic effort to raise awareness of the estimated 3,000 men, women, and children without a home on any given night in Palm Beach County.
Register to attend the event for free using the code “FreeEvent” or make a donation here. The Honorable Ann Brown is matching dollar-for-dollar, up to $350,000, of all money raised for SleepOut. A minimum donation of $25 per attendee is requested.
Attendees are also encouraged to bring hygiene items and non-perishable food items for kit assembly that will be given to those in need. Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and water and snacks will be on hand.
