Homeless Awareness Weekend

November 13-15, 2015

Mason Field North Attleboro

Evangelical Covenant Church collects donations from the street

Attleboro Area Youth Homelessness Awareness Weekend will take place at Mason Field in North Attleboro and will host youth and their leaders from Norton, Mansfield, North Attleboro, Attleboro, Wrentham, Foxboro, Seekonk and Rehoboth.

The students will build a cardboard city on Mason Field and will sleep there for two nights rain or shine. The temperatures could drop into the teens, or it could pour with chilly rain. The students have even experienced high winds and just cool temperatures as last year. They depend on the kindness of others for food for the weekend and they spend the weekend raising money by panhandling and selling coffee that has been donated. They also serve at area soup kitchens and learn some lessons about the misconceptions about homelessness.
