The 11th Annual Aid for Friends Homeless Encampment will be held from 9:00 am Saturday, December 2, 2017, until 9:00 am Sunday, December 3, 2017.

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.


We need YOU!

Help us make this our biggest encampment yet by committing to spend the night in a cardboard box for a single night. You will ask friends, family members, and business owners to sponsor you, and all donations will go right back to Aid for Friends.

Check out our Information Sheet for participants, and then call (208) 232-0178 to register.
