The Veterans Parsonage Homeless Sleepout
February 19 @ 8:00 am - February 20 @ 8:00 am
Board members of The Veterans Parsonage and PTX Military Fraternity will be joining forces to hold a 24 hour “Sleep Out” in front of the Indiana WalMart to raise awareness and funds for the Veterans Parsonage in Indiana, PA and to shed some light on the homeless veterans problem that plagues our nation.
The Veteran’s Parsonage is a non-profit organization funded through private donations. It provided services to American Military Veterans in terms of social services, life-skill services, counseling services, and employment services, as well as a warm place to rest their heads out of the elements.
The Parsonage was formed in order to assist and encourage responsible participation by veterans in returning to the workplace and successful re-integration back into society.
Parsonage and community members will be sleeping out for the entire 24 hour period. We invite everyone to come out and visit, donate and bring hot beverages and food!
Please stop by for an hour or more to show support. Food & Drink items will be accepted for event participants, as we will not be eating or drinking anything that isn’t donated (much like our veterans who find themselves in this situation). Monetary donations as well as cleaning supplies, non perishable food items, and personal hygiene products will be collected for the Veterans Parsonage during the event.
Any questions please email K.L.Squires@gmail.com – Thank you for your support for our local homeless veterans
