SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Siouxlanders preparing to spend time outdoors for a good cause will have the option to join virtually.
The annual Siouxland Sleep-Out is taking the event online. Only a limited number of people will be able to camp at the park due to COVID-19, but participants can still join in the good cause by pitching tents in their own backyard and joining virtually.
Kris Dam with Shesler Hall said it was important for the event to continue this year.
“With the pandemic, many of us who count on donations, even toilet paper being dropped off, were just not getting donations because everybody is so worried about social distancing, and so this year especially, we really need the extra donations in order to make our budget,” said Dam.
The Siouxland Sleep-Out is set for November 6 at Cone Park. Siouxlanders will be able to join in on Zoom calls from where they are sleeping out in their backyard.
This year will also feature a silent auction online which ends this Friday. More information can be found here.
Siouxland Sleep-Out is an event that brings awareness and raises funds for the homeless population around the area.
