Homeless Spaghetti Dinner SECOND ANNUAL HOMELESSNESS AWARENESS LOCK OUT iCal

Saturday, May 17 2014 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

SECOND ANNUAL HOMELESSNESS AWARENESS LOCK OUT (H.A.L.O.) EVENT TO BE HELD AT STURGEON BAY HIGH SCHOOL – A PARTNERSHIP OF PROJECT 180 STUDENTS & HABITAT VOLUNTEERS

 May 17th Event Will Raise Awareness of Local Homelessness & Affordable Housing Needs With Adults and Students Spending the Night in a Cardboard Box  

 

Sturgeon Bay, WI, May 12, 2014 – Door County Habitat for Humanity, which is hoping to raise enough money to complete two new homes in 2014, will partner with the county school systems’ Project 180 students on May 17th to raise awareness of local homelessness and affordable housing needs.  Volunteers – both students and adults – will spend an evening in a cardboard box in return for pledges of financial support.  In addition, the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate will host a Homeless Family Spaghetti Dinner from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday evening at the Sturgeon Bay High School commons.  All proceeds from the H.A.L.O. (Homeless Awareness Lock Out) event will support Habitat for Humanity’s local affordable housing programs.

 

Volunteers are needed to sleep in cardboard boxes, raise money to support the campers and assist with the spaghetti dinner. If you are not brave enough to sleep in a cardboard box or do not have enough time to volunteer, come to the spaghetti dinner.  Your dinner ticket will support both the event and the Habitat’s local affordable housing efforts. 

 

Spaghetti Dinner tickets are for sale by Project 180 students or at the Habitat office at $8 for adults and $5 for children under 10 years.  They can also be purchased at the door for $10. A family ticket costs $25. 

 

Nicole Herbst, Sturgeon Bay High School’s Project 180 Coordinator, explained that the program is a county-wide effort to promote healthy life styles.  “Our group is based out of the AODA (Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse) prevention initiative in Door County.  SBHS teens want to help offer alternative activities that are more healthy choices as well as how we can focus more on connecting with the community in a positive way.”
