The outside grounds of EAA Chapter 838 located at the Batten International Airport in Racine will be used for a fund raiser on November 8th-9th. Racine’s Homeless Center, HALO, will be sponsoring a “Sleep Out for HALO” from Friday night at 6:30 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
- All young people are welcome to participate.
- Youth (12 and older) will sleep under the stars with approved chaperones.
- All youth will be given a box, t-shirt, snack and a journal to document the experience of sleeping out overnight in a simulation of what is is like to be homeless – all while being in a secure environment.
- Each participant is asked to obtain $200 in pledges, and HALO is planning on having 200 youth and chaperones!
- The Racine Police department plans to have three police officers on site throughout the night.
