What is Night in a Car?
On April 26th, Aberdeen area residents are invited to spend a night in a car so others won’t have to as part of a brand new community fundraising event. “Night in a Car for Journey Home” will take place from 7 p.m. Friday, April 26, until 7 a.m. Saturday, April 27, in the Aberdeen Police Department parking lot, 114 Second Ave. S.E., Aberdeen, SD.
All profits will benefit the Journey Home, which provides support to individuals experiencing a housing crisis through services such as emergency shelter, supportive housing, food pantry and interactive financial planning. For Journey Home, a donation of $100 would cover:
- The cost of a one-night emergency shelter stay for up to six individuals.
- Several food boxes, available at the organization’s food pantry.
- Four to five days in supportive housing case management.
“Night in a Car for Journey Home” is sponsored by the 2019 Leadership Aberdeen class, a program of the Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce.
