Have you ever had to spend a night without a bed? If you’re lucky, the answer is no.  But Family Promise has sheltered families previously sleeping in cars, park pavilions, even abandoned houses.  There are far too many children and parents who sleep without a bed.  With the pandemic upon us, calls for help to Family Promise are higher than ever!

You can help Family Promise expand its shelter to help those families.  Right now.

Join the LUMC team and spend a night without a bed on May 2—in your car, on your sofa, on your floor, in a treehouse, in your tent in your yard–to remember those who can’t choose to.  Have fun and be creative while helping those in need. Get the whole family involved and ask your friends and family to sponsor you through online donations. Share your experiences on social media using the hashtag #NightWithoutABed
