Hi everyone it’s Stech. I’m needing your help as I spend the night outside in a cardboard box to call attention to and fight the problem on homelessness in the Peoria area.
Gimme Shelter is hosted by the South Side of Concern to raise awareness of the challenges faced by those in our community without homes and to give us an oppertunity to help in the fight to end homelessness right here in the Peoria area. This year will be the 3rd Annual to help raise funds to end homelessness here in our community. Over 1,500 homeless children attend school in our area. Any given night, over 400 people in our community have no place to stay. 1 in 5 homeless people are between the ages of 18 and 24. Please lend a hand and help me make a difference in someone’s life.
On Friday night, February 8th, I will join other community volunteers in spending the night outside the Peoria Civic Center in a cardboard box to raise awareness for those with nowhere to call home and experience a bit of what it might be like to be outside overnight, in the coldest part of a Central IL. Winter. Something that homeless people face every Winter night.
