About the event
Night Without a Bed Info:
Night Without a Bed provides people and their families with a greater, personal understanding of the challenges facing families experiencing homelessness here in our own community.
Individuals, families or groups spend the night in someplace other than their own bed. They can also build a cardboard structure (bring your own cardboard). Family Promise of Albuquerque will have a location where folks can set up a tent or a cardboard box(es) they bring or park their car and stay the night in their vehicle. There will be activities, entertainment and presentations throughout the evening related to family homelessness. We will also have dinner, breakfast, and varied prizes and drawings for participants.
To generate awareness about the number of families experiencing homelessness in our own community and to raise money for Family Promise of Albuquerque, an organization that empowers families to become self-sufficient and find housing.
Register($25) and try to collect contributions. This is much like a walk-a-thon. You can get pledges from anyone. Family, friends, teachers, and anyone else you connect with in the community. You don’t have to spend the night at the event but we do ask you to spend the night anywhere but in your bed; just come for the program portion if you choose. If you stay over, bring a large box(es) or your vehicle or a tent, a tarp, blankets, a pillow or sleeping bag.
