Shine a Light Night – Friday 16th October
Shine a Light Night takes place on Friday 16th October 2020! This year, we are asking business leaders, companies, and people all over Ireland to sleep-out safely in their home, garden, or workplace to help raise vital funds for people experiencing homelessness. Join us virtually on #ShineALightNight for a shared digital experience and host a virtual sleep-out in aid of Focus Ireland.
COVID-19 been a huge challenge for us all, and it has been particularly challenging for the many men, women, families, and children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The Coronavirus means people experiencing homelessness are more vulnerable, and our front line services have adapted quickly to a 49% increase in demand. Since the COVID-19 public health emergency in March, Focus Ireland has moved 519 families and 1,119 children out of homelessness nationwide.
Together, with the support of Bord Gáis Energy, and your fundraising, we’re aiming to raise €1.3 million in 2020 to support people experiencing homelessness in Ireland. We need your support now more than ever.
