2020 Sleep Out goes digital

5 August 2020|Community News| Off Comments off on 2020 Sleep Out goes digital|

THE Salvos Sleep Out 2020 will be held on Thursday 3 September with the aim to raise $50,000 to keep Hobart’s Street2Home community outreach program running for people experiencing homelessness in Hobart and Glenorchy.

The Sleep Out also provides an educational experience about homelessness in Tasmania, the daily challenges faced by people who sleep rough and the Street2Home service.

In most years, the Salvos Sleep Out is the one night of discomfort that we all need to experience.

This year, the event will go online due to COVID-19 restrictions, providing an opportunity for more people to become involved as there will be no limits in number or age for participants.

Sleeping out will change participants’ thoughts about homelessness forever, with this one act of kindness also changing the lives of Tasmanians doing it tough.

Interested participants can register online and start fundraising with their friends.

On the night of 3 September, the Salvos Sleep Out website will include content throughout the evening such as video tours of homelessness services, lived experience testimonials and a guest panel of distinguished thinkers in the area of homelessness.
