Dear friends,

Sleep Out XXII will kick off its all-in communitywide miracle in the making on Thursday, Nov. 16, at Wayzata Brew Works.
Believers from local banks and businesses, faith communities and schools, neighborhoods, families, scout troops and youth groups, book clubs and civic groups, corporations, cities, media - the whole village - are gearing up for a six-week $2.3M miracle of caring.
The generous energy the Sleep Out sparks every year is fueled by the sobering urgency and resolve we have to ensure all families and kids of our community have a safe place to call home, and real and sustainable opportunities to build strong and hopeful futures.
It's what this community does. Each of us and all of us - together. Every year. It's a miracle! Thank you - so much - for finding your irreplaceable role in making it happen once again.
If you can, please join us for Giving Day on the Bay, Thursday, Nov. 16, at Wayzata Brew Works from 5-7 p.m., for a family-friendly kickoff to Sleep Out XXII.
The evening will include live music, brews, out-of-this-world root beer, pizza and the sheer joy of giving. I guarantee it!

LaDonna Hoy
Executive Director


Spark hope through the Sleep Out

GOAL: TO RAISE $2,300,000 BY DEC. 31

Strong futures begin at home. But one in five families that comes in for help is experiencing a crisis of homelessness.

For 22 years, thousands of caring community members have joined the Sleep Out movement to sleep outside in boxes, tents and cars to raise awareness and funds to support struggling local families. Learn more and help us change futures, one family at a time.
