Siouxland Sleepout, attempt to raise homeless issues awareness, Sioux CIty

8 Nov

The 10th anniversary of the Siouxland Sleepout, an attempt to elevate the awareness of homelessness in the Siouxland area occurred over a Friday night. Unlike the previous year, the temperature was cool and even chilly, but not downright cold. But what seemed to previously draw a large number of individuals and organizations such as church groups and scout troops, the numbers seem to be dwindling, although the enthusiasm of those participating more than made up for those not attending.
