One Winter Night 2020

Description

One Winter Night is an annual event that provides a powerful opportunity for our community to learn about homelessness, raise awareness for our friends without an address, and experience a bit of what it might be like to be outside, overnight, in the coldest part of a Central Illinois Winter.

Box dwellers commit to spending 12 hours outside in a cardboard box, in downtown Champaign and raise at least $1,000 to help C-U at Home continue doing all we do to help our community in 2019. You can get involved with us by donating or signing up to be a box dwellerbusiness sponsor, or volunteer!

We have many different volunteer positions: Week of Set-Up, Box Dweller Registraion, Volunteer Registration, Street Team, Hospitality, Indoor/Outdoor Set Up, Donation Collection, Event Tear Down, and Security. To view each position, visit here. 

Final Date: 
Friday, February 7, 2020 - 12:00am
The final date for this opportunity has passed.
