ASAC Benefits from the Linn County Sleep Out

DonationsComments Off on ASAC Benefits from the Linn County Sleep Out

At a check ceremony on January 26, 2016, ASAC received $3,150 from the Linn County Circle of Care for our two Cedar Rapids transitional housing programs: Adult Halfway House and Heart of Iowa Halfway House.

The check was ASAC’s share of the more than $30,000 raised from the 10th Annual Sleep Out for the Homeless that was held on Saturday, November 7th – Sunday, November 8th at Veterans Memorial Stadium. The purpose of the Sleep Out is to increase awareness of the issue of homelessness in our community and to raise funds for area programs that serve the homeless. A total of 24 teams and 164 individuals helped to raise funds for the Sleep Out.

Mark your calendars. The 11th Annual Sleep Out for the Homeless will be held on October 29 – October 30, 2016.  Please visit http://www.sleepoutforhomeless.org/ for more information.
