Combined Community Services WINTER WARMTH SLEEP OUT
October 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
As the weather begins to chill and families begin to plan and prepare for the upcoming holidays, we are thankful for many things; and near the top of that list is HEAT.
You are invited to help others keep their heat on this winter by participating in the Combined Community Services (CCS) Winter Warmth Sleepout on Friday, October 18, 2019; with scheduled activities from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
In 2018, CCS assisted families 278 times when they had a utility disconnect notice, in keeping their utilities on. Families are eligible to request assistance once they have a disconnect notice and can make a request once annually. While we celebrate assisting 278 families, we were still unable to assist some families due to funding limitations.
CCS seeks to raise awareness for the need of utility assistance in Kosciusko County as well as raise funds to help keep families warm this winter. Individuals, groups and families can sign up to raise funds at CCSSleepout.com. There will be a traveling trophy for the youth group that raises the most funds as well as the youth group that wins the activities of the night. For youth group challenge information contact Tim Frame at (574) 269-6019.
We look forward to seeing you Friday, October 18 for the annual CCS Winter Warmth Sleepout on the Kosciusko County Courthouse lawn. Attendees can bring tents, boxes and sleeping bags and sleep out on the lawn but are not required to stay through the night to participate. From 6:00 to 9:00 pm enjoy activities such as games, snacks, and music. The event is sponsored by Kosciusko REMC.
