EXPLORERS TO HOST SIOUXLAND SLEEP-OUT

Sioux City, IA - The 8th annual Siouxland Sleep-Out is scheduled for Friday, November 9, 2012. We will begin to set up at Lewis and Clark Park (Explorers Stadium) at 1:30 pm. Lights are out at 11:00pm. Most supporters will arrive between 4 PM and 7 PM.
 
This year the event is being sponsored by both the Mental Health America of Siouxland and the Siouxland Coalition to End Homelessness. We hope to have as many as 300 participants. We expect dozens of shelters creatively decorated as part of our contest.
 
There will be many more campers available for media stories, including civic leaders, business leaders, social workers, youth and those recently homeless. Call the event (Willie Delfs @ 203-4663 or Mike Wood @ 202-4408) or just come out. Media will be directed to the right interview or photo opportunity.
 
Lives of the homeless or near-homeless can be changed by this event and media coverage. Awareness is the key. Please come out and support our effort.
