“A Night without a Home” will be held from noon Saturday to noon Sunday in Superior’s City Park at the corner of Belknap Street and Tower Avenue. The local sleep-out benefit is held during National Homeless Week for the homeless of Superior and Douglas County. On Saturday at noon there will be an opening ceremony with an invocation and a special tribute to our veterans.
People will be sleeping out during the event. Food and hot beverages will be served. Donations and funds will be accepted on site and will go to help homeless people in the Superior and Douglas County area.
