With the Central Coast in lockdown until at least July 30, Coast Shelter has changed the date of its annual Sleepout to Friday, September 10.
The event was originally planned for August 6.
Coast Shelter CEO, Michael Starr, is urging Coasties to embrace the new date for the Sleepout, to be held at Central Coast Stadium.
The event aims to increase awareness through the business community of the issues surrounding domestic and family violence and homelessness on the Central Coast.
The second aim is to raise funds by encouraging executives, community leaders, business owners and their staff to sleepout for one night and gain a small insight into what homeless people experience every night.
Participants must raise or donate $1,000 to be entitled to attend the Sleepout @ the Stadium.
They are then encouraged to sell raffle tickets, get sponsors, and host some fundraising events.
Teams are also encouraged to enter.
