Sleep Out! Team Spotlight – Columbus Gives Back

 

Columbus Gives Back is a nonprofit committed to making volunteering easy, accessible, and fun for young adults in the Columbus community. They have a team of employees and volunteers that are coming together to Sleep Out! and support our mission.

  • Why is your team sleeping out on April 12th, 2019? Columbus Gives Back is sleeping out because we believe that no youth should have to experience homelessness. We hope to raise money and awareness about this issue in our community and the resources available at Huckleberry House.
  • What does your team hope to gain from the Sleep Out? I hope that our team gains a sense of understanding of what it is like to sleep outside at night if you don’t have anywhere to call home. Experiencing homelessness by way of a simulation such as this, can bring attention to this issue in ways that a report or an article cannot. I hope our team can use this experience to be better advocates for these causes in the future.
  • What brings your team together for this event? We’re a diverse group of individuals united by our love of volunteering and making Columbus a better place. Our community will never achieve it’s full potential without addressing youth homelessness.

Support the Columbus Gives Back team in their commitment to raise $1,000 and Sleep Out! to end youth homelessness in central Ohio. Donate to their team page HERE or register your own team and raise awareness and funds HERE.
