Home Sweet Home Ministries, in partnership with Trinity Lutheran Church, is thrilled to share the official results of the fifth annual Night in a Car. With the generous support of the community, over $130,000 was raised.
308 participants from our local community to across the country challenged themselves to spend an entire night in their cars on Friday, February 5th, 2021. Participants were given the option to drive-in at Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington or participate virtually by spending a night in a car from their own driveways. Individuals, families, churches, and businesses, supported by over 1,300 donations, experienced a unique glimpse into homelessness. Activity packets and online materials were provided to help participants engage in a variety of homeless situations.
“Even in the midst of this pandemic, people from all over came together to support this wonderful event,” says Todd Keller, Home Sweet Home Ministries’ Donor Relations Coordinator. “Our Night in a Car Steering Team was able to look through the concerns of COVID in order to see options that we had not seen in previous years. We are so pleased that our teams, sponsors, hosts, and participants were able to adapt around our shared passion of helping our community.”
Home Sweet Home looks forward to even more growth in 2022. Plans are in place for next year’s Night in a Car on Friday, February 4, 2022. Save the date now!
