Kitsap Rescue Mission to hold ‘Sleep Out’ for Homelessness Awareness Friday night

Event will take place from Friday at 3:30 p.m. to Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m.

Kitsap Rescue Mission will be holding a Sleep Out for Homelessness Awareness event Friday, Nov. 22 in efforts to promote their Bring Them In campaign and to raise awareness about those who are currently sleeping outside.

The event will go from 3:30 p.m. Friday to 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Groups will be assigned to corners at 6th and Warren Ave. and 6th and Park Ave. Once businesses close on 6th Street, folks will line the street with sleeping bags from Warren Ave. to Park Ave. around 7 p.m. Restrooms will be open at Kitsap Rescue Mission for use.

KRM advises that participants:

  • Abide by all police orders
  • Report any issues to Mission staff
  • Lay sleeping bags parallel to buildings
  • Pick up any trash surrounding your area

Staff also advises participants to not block or impede any moving traffic or pedestrians using the sidewalk and to not bring or use any alcohol or drugs.

“If police ask you to move, please do so,” the release states. “This is not a protest. The purpose is to bring us all together around one cause.”
