Winnipeg has always been my home and my community. On September 26th, I will be spending the night under the stars & street lights to help raise awareness and to support Siloam Mission and their initiatives to help alleviate homelessness and poverty in Winnipeg.
I have been volunteering with Siloam Mission since 2016; I have seen the phenomenal work they do in all facets of their operation. Siloam Mission is compassionate and inclusive to all of their guests, staff, and volunteers. The guests, each with their own unique history, challenges, and successes are always welcomed into Siloam Mission with a positive, understanding, and supportive hand. Siloam Mission opened my eyes to more than just what is perceived at the surface level of homelessness in Winnipeg.
My goal for the Siloam Sleepout is to raise $2000.00 in support of Siloam Mission. One meal at Siloam costs $3.11 and $25.00 gives one person 3 meals and a night of shelter. All funds raised will be used to provide meals, shelter, health care, and employment services for people facing homelessness and poverty in Winnipeg. Thank you in advance for visiting my page and helping me reach my goal!
