The Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc. will hold the 3rd Annual Night at the Shelter SleepOut on October 3-4, 2014 at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport. The Night at the Shelter SleepOut is designed to bring awareness about homelessness in the Quad City community and raise funds to help provide beds and support for homeless persons served at the Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc.
Gather your family and friends and join us for an enlightening, fun-filled night to help fight homelessness in the QC area. Participate in the “Build Your Own Shelter” contest and stay the night in what you build. Activities throughout the evening will include: live music, games, food, and an outdoor movie on the Modern Woodmen Park Jumbo screen. The event concludes on Saturday, October 4th with breakfast and a heartfelt closing ceremony. General admission to this event is $10 per person, although we hope you will help us raise additional funds by asking everyone you know to sponsor your efforts to help the homeless. No amount is too small and a $10 donation will support a bed for one night. Your participation in this event will help ensure the continuation of shelter services to homeless men and women in the QC area well into the future.
