“One Night Without A Home” 2012

A homelessness awareness event sponsored by Ross County Community Action. WHEN: Friday November 16th at 4:30pm – Saturday November 17th at 9:00am. WHERE: Yoctangee Park in downtown Chillicothe WHAT: This will be an educational/awareness event with an emphasis on discussing the problem of homelessness in Ross County. This will also be a fundraising event and all donations that are collected will be distributed to the Ross County homeless shelters. (Please bring all donations to the event. Donations can include money as well as household goods/dishes, furniture, clothing etc.) Following the educational portion, we ask that all those attending show their solidarity with our local homeless population by spending the night in the park. We ask that no tents be used, only sleeping bags/blankets, tarps or boxes. The event will be free of charge and food will also be provided. This event will be rain or shine due to the fact that the homeless population of our County cannot choose the days that they are homeless. We will not be cancelling the event because of weather. We ask that everyone who participates plan accordingly. For more information please contact John Huffman at RCCAC at (740)702-7222 ext. 105
