Youth from Grace United Methodist Church and St. Petri/Bergen Lutheran Church participated in Reggie’s Sleepout in Ames on Saturday, March 25, at Jack Trice Stadium. Grace Church youth won an honorable mention award for the boxed-in design contest. Their cardboard shelter shaped like the letter “H” represented Hope for the Homeless. Funds raised for Reggie’s Sleepout will benefit three organizations that work to alleviate and eliminate homelessness in our community: YSS, Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support (ACCESS) and Emergency Residence Project (ERP).
