A personal message from Jill Garbaliauskas

Sleep Out Saturday is one of those events that changes the way you look at homelessness. The first SOS event I did, I didn't think the night was every going to end. It was a little warmer than usual for November, but it was so damp out. No matter what I did, the blankets I was using became wet and you get so chilled from being out in the elements. I remember also thinking of how loud it was being outside. I wasn't able to sleep as the noises of cars seemed so loud. I tried to focus on anything other than the fact that i was sleeping outside under a wet blanket. I thought about people that had to do this night after night. I couldn't imagine having to go to school or work after sleeping outside all night long. It made me appreciate having a warm, safe house to go to. It was an eye opening experience for me and I'm glad I get to continue fundraising for such a great program like Bridge Communities. A donation of $35.00 provides a family one night of safe, secure and warm housing! Please consider donating to Sleep Out Saturday 2021!

Sincerely,
Jill Garbaliauskas
