Would you brave a cold winter’s night to raise money for homelessness?
The team at Mc Cafferty’s Bar in Donegal Town are staging a ‘Sleep Out for Simon’ fundraiser this February and they are inviting everyone to rise to the challenge.
The Mc Cafferty’s Bar, Charity Sleep Out is taking place on the Diamond in Donegal town on Saturday, 1st February 2020, to help create funds and awareness for the North West Simon Community.
In 2019, North West Simon Community provided support services, to a total of 398 people consisting of 217 adults and 181 children.
There are currently 31 people living in Simon Community housing in Co. Donegal. While rough sleeping represents the severest form of homelessness, the majority of people who are homeless or experiencing homelessness in the North West are not immediately identifiable as homeless. They are living in emergency or temporary accommodation, on social housing lists or waiting in vain for affordable private rental accommodation to become available.
A spokesperson for North West Simon Community said: “North West Simon Community’s Outreach Service is there for people who need support to keep their homes or who are at risk of tenancy breakdown. The charity has an outreach worker in Sligo, Leitrim & Donegal.
“Through our work we witness first-hand how hard things are right now for people and in light of this your support would be very welcome at this time.
“It is only with the support of Businesses like Mc Cafferty’s Bar and the local Community, that we can continue to close the door on homelessness in the North West.”
Rise to the Challenge and join Mc Cafferty’s Bar, Charity Sleep Out in Donegal town on Saturday, 1st February 2020 to help North West Simon Community continue to Prevent and Resolve Homelessness.
