Position Guest Sleeper - 5 Days for the Homeless
Location University of Lethbridge, University Drive West, Lethbridge, AB, Canada
Impact Statement 5 Days for the Homeless is a national campaign run by the Canadian Association of Business Students that strives to raise awareness and donations for members of society that are at risk of or experiencing homelessness. In the Lethbridge community, all funds raised will be donated to Woods Homes, a children’s mental health center that provides treatment and support to children, youth and families. Volunteering with 5 Days can be very beneficial and end in a very positive note, whether you’re a full 5 Days sleeper or a guest sleeper.
Description A guest sleeper will be sleeping at the make-shift house in the Student Union Bus Loop for 1 to 4 nights. We ask you to be there around 7pm on your respective night, and set up camp! Guest sleepers stay for around 12 hours, 7pm to 7am. Bring sleeping bag and warm clothes. In the end, you can log around 12 hours of volunteering, and gain some insight on what it is like to sleep outside. You will also be provided with meals, thanks in part to donations from the community.
