The sleep-out, in the frigid Chicago outdoors, will take place from noon on Friday, December 18th, 2015 and will last for 24 hours. The vets will be camped out at the Sculpture Garden on the northeast corner of 11th and Wabash. All proceeds raised will be donated to Volunteers of America of Illinois .

Your donation will go toward the organizations to sustain their program in the areas of food, shelter, job placement, homeless veteran outreach, clothing, training and other services provided by these non- profits.
