About the Event

As part of the ExtraGive, Tabor Community Services is hosting The Camp Out for Homelessness at Clipper Magazine Stadium. Campers will enjoy a fun night of activities while reflecting on the seriousness of homelessness here in Lancaster County.

 

All campers will be Fundraising Campions for Tabor or TLC through the Extraordinary Give, and the night will be topped off by camping out on the field. The Extraordinary Give is Lancaster's largest day of online giving. For 24 hours, you can give and raise money for Tabor and TLC.

  

In participating, you will:

  • Get a glimpse into what it is like to experience homelessness.
  • Have a renewed thankfulness for the roof over their head, food on your plate, and bed that you crawl into every night.
  • Hear from and connect with individuals who have experienced homelessness.
  • Continue beyond this event to be a support, advocate, and champion for individuals, families, and veterans experiencing homelessness here in Lancaster County. 

 

* Registration is required, register by November 18
