EVENT: Sleep Out 2016 Registration
EVENT DATE: Mar 25, 2016
Dear Friends and Family,
Last year was the first ever CFS SleepOut. Fifty individuals from Manchester's business community and CFS staff, in a show of solidarity, slept out in Stanton Plaza in downtown Manchester, NH, to raise awareness and funds to help homeless youth. The development staff of Child and Family Services, along with our advocacy director, will be sleeping out as a team this year on Friday, March 25th and we hope that you will support our committment and donate on our behalf.
Our friends and family have the luxury of reading this letter in the safety of their own home. But for the estimated 300 homeless youth in Greater Manchester, that is not the case. They have left their homes for a range of reasons such as abuse, neglect, mental illness, substance abuse, proverty and more. These youth are at risk and suffer many conseuquences and hopefully find their way to CFS. CFS helps approximately 1500 runaway, homeless and street youth, per year and provides them with the basic elements for survival and the tools and support with which to succeed. Proceeds from this event will help to fulfill basic needs such as food, clothing and access to shelter and medical care, and will support metal helath and substance abuse counseling, educational advocacy, job search and housing.
Please support the 2016 Child and Family Serives of New Hampshire SleepOut and donate to the Devo Team fundraising page today.
Erin, Debbie, Donna, and Keith
