An event that brings awareness to homelessness in the Siouxland area will take place soon.
The twelfth annual Siouxland Sleep-Out is set to be held at Mercy Field in Lewis and Clark Park on Friday, November 4th.
Participants set up cardboard boxes and tents to sleep outdoors and learn what it’s like to not have a home .
The money raised from participants and pledges stays in Sioux City to benefit several agencies which provide housing and supportive services to the homeless.
Those wanting to take part or volunteer to help with the event should contact Mike Wood at 255-1691.
