The SUNY Broome Student Assembly is hosting its eighth annual SUNY Broome Community College Homeless Awareness Sleep-Out on the evening of May 12 to early May 13, rain or shine. Please join us to help raise funds and awareness of this problem in our community.

How to get involved: Attend the event on May 12 and ask your family, friends, co-workers, etc. to sponsor you by making a donation. Participate in the Talent Fest to get a chance to win various prizes.

Set-up begins at 3:30 p.m., and participants will meet in the Applied Technology Building atrium at 5 p.m. The College Choir will perform, and participants will watch a documentary about homelessness around sunset.

When events conclude in AT, participants will head outside to sleep out for the night; tents, tarps, boxes, blankets and warm clothes are recommended. Feel free to arrive at any point during the evening.
