SUPPLY, NC (WECT) – A local church will be giving people the chance to try to understand what it is like to be homeless soon.
According to a press release from Rev. Donna Phelps, Building Hope Ministries will be hosting Sleep Out for the Homeless from 10 a.m. to 8 a.m. starting Saturday, May 19, with the goal to raise awareness about area homelessness.
Participants will reflect on and discuss the problem with one another, and a $20 donation will be taken to help fund the Interfaith Nights Sheltering Network Program in the winter.
Cardboard will be given out for makeshift shelters, and unlike the homeless, portable toilets will be onsite, along with food and bottled water.
