Fri., November 6

That's when we got together to freeze our collective tuckuses off this year. We do it every year.

Did you know that there were around 2,500 homeless people in Sioux City last year—about 250 or 300 on the streets on any given day? There are entire families living on the streets. Children. It's not a good situation.

Another little-known fact is that slightly over 25% of Siouxland's homeless are veterans, ranging from those who served in Vietnam to the Iraq/Afghanistan war.

Realizing this, off to the park went the volunteers last November. They took pledges, packed up their tents (and cardboard boxes in a few cases) and off to the park they went. It was such a success that they're going to do it again in 2015! We're gonna have an auction, a box contest, maybe even a movie if the weather holds!

Hey, we're in the news! Read all about Willie HERE.
