12/9/22 - 12/9/22
VIEW

Join community leaders and caring citizens as we gather together for the 11th Annual Freezin’ for a Reason Sleep Out and Fundraiser on Friday, Dec 9 at 6pm!

Spend a night on the Winsted Green, bringing awareness to the persistent issue of homelessness in our community and supporting the work of the Winsted Y Homeless Shelter.  Pitch a tent, a cardboard box or sleep under the stars as you experience what it’s like to be homeless for a winter’s night. There is no registration fee, however participants/teams are asked to raise funds for the cause and get sponsorships for their night in the cold. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to support the work of our 16-bed Emergency Shelter.

If you would like to donate to Freezin’ for a Reason, please click here.
