Shining a Light on Homelessness

Thank you to everyone who helped make A Night on the Town 2021 a HUGE success! We were able to raise over $43,000 to help fight homelessness in Calloway County!

Check back here for more information about next year’s event!

Shining a Light on Homelessness

HOPE Calloway’s biggest community awareness and fundraiser event of the year is called “A Night on the Town.” A Night on the Town is an event that provides a powerful opportunity for our community to learn about homelessness, raise awareness for our friends without an address, and experience a bit of what it might be like to be outside, overnight, in the hottest part of our humid Kentucky summers. “Box dwellers” commit to spending 7 hours outside in a cardboard box. Box dwellers come from all walks of life: local government leaders, police officers, pastors, business leaders, students, grandmas and grandpas, moms and dads. Each box dweller is challenged to raise $1,000 to help HOPE Calloway continue doing all we do to help our community throughout the year.

You can get involved with us by donating or signing up to be a box dweller, business sponsor, or volunteer for the event!

Attend the Event

A Night on the Town is a great opportunity to learn more about how our community works together to fight homelessness. During the event you can visit information booths from many of our community partners who are fighting hunger and homelessness every day. Kids can visit the kid zone to hear stories, make a craft, and learn ways that even kids can help fight homelessness in our community. Listen to music and enjoy food from Mija’s Food Truck as you take in all the event has to offer.

Do I need to bring my own box?

No, we provide all the boxes!

What if I’m not able to raise $1,000?

Have no fear! It is much easier to raise $1,000 than you might think. We equip you with a Facebook fundraiser, which allows you to share the cause with your friends and family.

However, if for some reason you are not able to raise all of the funds, that’s okay. We are thankful for your involvement and any amount of money you are able to raise.

How can I help raise awareness about the event?

Like, Share, and Comment! Share everything we post on social media about A Night on the Town to your friends and followers. Also, plan to bring your phone on the night of the event. We encourage you to share pictures and livestream your experience as a box dweller!

What am I allowed to bring?

A Night on the Town takes place during the hottest part of Kentucky summers. So make sure that you dress appropriately. We recommend shorts and a t-shirt. We will provide you with a snack bag and plenty of water during the event. Don’t forget your phone for social media blasts! Other than that, what do you need really? (I mean, come on… this is about the experience too!)
