Gimme Shelter 2018 – A Night to End Homelessness
Friday, January 19, at 6:00 pm - Saturday, January 20, at 6:00 am.
Peoria Civic Center, 201 SW Jefferson Avenue, Peoria
Community members will raise funds for the “privilege” of spending the night, from 6:00 pm in the evening until 6:00 am the next morning, outside in a cardboard box. Gimme Shelter will bring our community together, raise awareness of the plight of those with nowhere to call home, and provide a powerful opportunity to learn more about homelessness. Participants will experience a bit of what it might be like to be outside, overnight, in the coldest part of a Central Illinois winter. Proceeds from Gimme Shelter will benefit the South Side Office of Concern and support homeless outreach services and permanent supportive housing to end homelessness in our community.
