In light of COVID-19, Spectrum has decided to make the Downtown Burlington Sleep Out a virtual event and our Champlain College Sleeps Out Team will be joining!
Although the sleep-out will no longer be held in a group on campus, Spectrum’s youth still need your help! When times are tough economically, Spectrums youth are among the first to feel the hit. Already, they have had young people whose rental housing is threatened because their workplaces are shut down. Spectrum expects to see the number of youth seeking food, shelter, and emergency help to rise.
To join in on the virtual sleep-out here is what you will do:
-Post photos or video of where you will be sleeping out (while simultaneously practicing social distancing) and tag them: #SpectrumSleepOut and/or #StandBySpectrumYouth.
-Send photos and videos to Team Captain Liza Ryan at (716) 380-2541.
-The morning after your sleep-out, write a narrative about your experience sleeping out and why supporting Burlington’s youth is important.
-Please continue to fundraise so that our youth get the help they need when they need it most.
