9th Annual Homeless Encampment



The 9th Annual Aid for Friends Homeless Encampment will be held Saturday, December 5, 2015, until Sunday, December 6, 2015.

This is a unique event in which participants raise money by soliciting tax-deductible pledges from individuals and businesses, and spend the night in a cardboard box in the heart of an Idaho winter. There will be both light entertainment and heart-touching stories, as well as a soup kitchen style dinner and burn barrels for warmth.

For more details, check out our Fact Sheet.
