Make a donation to St. Matthew UCC crazies youth group


On November 7th more than 1,000 children, teens and adults will spend the night sleeping outside in tents, boxes, or cars or doubled up inside their homes without a bed to call their own, all to raise awareness about family homelessness and funds for Bridge Communities' Transitional Housing Program.

Your help is needed now more than ever. With your help, Bridge Communities will transition over 100 families to self-sufficiency by working with community partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services. Please give to demonstrate your commitment to helping homeless families build a bridge to a brighter future!

A personal message from St. Matthew UCC crazies youth group

For the past several years, the youth of St. Matthew (and some brave adult chaperones) have participated in this county-wide event and raised necessary funds for Bridge. This year we are inviting others in our St. Matthew family to join us for a "virtual" Sleep Out-- families are invited to sleep as families in their cars, forts or boxes in their homes.

Since so many of us are missing our church family, this event could bring us together and allow for sharing of pictures and ideas. Let's connect virtually, help those in our community in need, and create an empathy-building experience!
