A personal message from Chad Pedigo

Greetings Friends,

This November 5th I am giving up the comforts and security that come with a home and warm bed to sleep in and instead will spend a night sleeping outside in the cold with other fellow dogooders showing solidarity and compassion for homeless parents and their children struggling to survive day to day across our community. Please help me to accomplish my goal of providing funding for 2 months of safe housing and resources for a local homeless family so that the dream of #HomelessNoMore can become a reality. No contribution is too big or too small and I truly appreciate you supporting my efforts for being outside on this cold night so others will no longer have to be. Thank you!!

Chad Pedigo
