Can you build a shelter out of a pallet, a tarp, some rope and other things you might find by the side of the road within 5 minutes? How many hygiene kits can your team put together before time runs out? These are just two of the fun activities that teams and individuals will take part in at the AMAZING QUEST to Understand Homelessness.
This first time event, on Saturday, October 7th, will bring together people from throughout the community to compete with one another and work together to learn about homelessness, and some of the issues that people experiencing homelessness go through on a daily basis. Teams with the most points will receive prizes and there will be a special prize for the team with the most spirit! Points can be earned by completing the activities, locating individuals along the route who are handing out surprise points, and identifying special points of interest along the route.
You can also earn points by donating needed items and obtaining donations through friends, family and coworkers by having them sponsor you or your team.
- New or gently used: Outside sleeping bag, tarp, wool blanket
- New: Emergency blanket, socks
If you are looking for an easy team-bonding activity for your group, whether business, faith communities, service group, school, etc., this is a wonderful opportunity to spend a few hours together, working as a team and benefiting those that are the most vulnerable among us.
