Your Opportunity to Make a Difference.

THE EVENT: REGGIE’S SLEEPOUT
Sleep out to help end homelessness. Create a Team. Raise money. Work together with friends. Share an experience you’ll never forget. Have fun while staying safe at home. In an effort to ensure our campers stay safe and healthy, this year’s event will not be hosted at Drake Stadium and participants will sleepout at their own house or residence.

WHEN: SEPT. 4-13 ; KICKING OFF FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4
We encourage all participants to sleepout at least one night during the course of Reggie’s Sleepout. You are welcome to sleepout as many times as you would like during the span of the event.

WHERE: AT HOME
Pick any safe location within your yard, home or apartment. You can sleep on the floor in your kitchen or living room, assemble a tent or make a cardboard enclosure in your yard or come up with your own idea. The key is that you are making an effort to get out of your comfort zone (no beds!). Please exercise caution when sleeping out. Be weary of your surroundings and the weather. Avoid groups of 10 or more and follow current CDC guidelines for social distancing if applicable. At the end of the day, safety is our number one concern.

WHY:
To raise awareness and money to address the critical problem of youth homelessness in Central Iowa. All proceeds benefit Iowa Homeless Youth Centers.
Iowa Homeless Youth Centers is a community-based organization of YSS (based in Ames, Iowa).
