Let's SleepOut in Place

Digital Rally Saturday, May 2 | 5PM - 6PM

 While our original event at Six Flags Great America had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are encouraging everyone to ‘SleepOut in Place’! Now, more than ever, our neighbors experiencing homelessness still need our support - please consider continuing your fundraising and hosting a digital fundraiser.

Pitch a tent in your living room, host a Zoom event with your co-workers, or jump on FB live to encourage donations - your digital event can be a fantastic way to stay connected with friends, family, and community while supporting a great cause!

SleepOut events can be held anywhere (as long as you're still practicing safe social distancing)!

Host a Sleepout in your backyard, gather co-workers in your office, run a solo digital fundraiser, or create your own unique experience. You can create your own unique event with like-minded friends.

All proceeds from the event will support the vital programs and services that PADS Lake County provides to the men, women, and children experiencing homelessness in our community.

"I was homeless because of a divorce with domestic violence and an operation—I had limited support ... I am now in a safe environment—a peaceful and enjoyable place I can call home. I am grateful to have such a strong supportive group coaching, guiding, and assisting in any way they can." - L.W.

Your participation in events like this make life-changing moments like this possible!


Make it a Team Event

Call up your friends and family, colleagues, or community organization members to raise awareness, funds, and support for the individuals and families experiencing homelessness here in Lake County. 

Family Edition 
SleepOut in your backyard or living room with your kiddos and create a fun memory that will last a lifetime and learn more about how homelessness impacts our communities as a family.

Student Edition 
1 in 45 kids in America will face homeless this year. Be one of the other 44 who can help. School has gone digital - fundraising can too! Step into a leadership role by starting a team with your classmates and let your networks know that during this pandemic, you're working to make sure the most vulnerable members of our community are safe.

Workplace Edition 
A perfect team building activity for you and your co-workers while working from home! Host Zoom happy hours to plan your fundraising strategy and plan a celebratory digital meetup when you reach your goals.

Create Your Own 
Whether you have a Girl or Cub Scout Group, soccer team, civic club, place of worship, or other community organization, starting a digital SleepOut team is a great way to bond all while supporting a good cause!
