Sleep Out Saturday Sponsorship Opportunities
Sleep Out Saturday began in 2004 with the purpose of raising awareness about the issue of family homelessness in DuPage County and to raise money to support homeless families in the Bridge Communities' Transitional Housing Program.
Sleep Out Saturday provides the opportunity for businesses and corporations to partner with a high-profile, well-supported non-profit organization. Additionally, Sleep Out Saturday is a unique event in which sleepers experience what it would be like to be homeless.
