THE STORY:

Cardboard City Sleep Out

Join us for an all-night outside event to raise awareness about homelessness and raise money for initiatives working to end homelessness in the Greater Hartford region. Spend the night outside in recognition of those who don't have a home to go to at night and come away with increased awareness about homelessness and the toolkit you need to become an advocate for your community. 

Activities:

Oxfam Hunger Banquet (Quinnipiac University)
“At this interactive event, the place where you sit, and the meal that you eat, are determined by
the luck of the draw

just as in real life some of us are born into relative prosperity and others
into poverty.” http://actfast.oxfamamerica.org/index.php/events/banquet
