Sleep Out with the Salvos

Sleep Out with the Salvos

Last Friday evening, 10 Scotch students from Years 11 and 12 participated in the Sleep Out with the Salvos night to raise awareness for homelessness and launch this year’s Red Shield Appeal. This event involved us sleeping outside in the Unley Soldier’s Memorial Garden with only a sleeping bag and some cardboard. In doing this, we were able to experience one night of homelessness and raise Red Shield Appeal funds to help transform people’s lives. 

The participating Scotch students collected donations from peers during the day and raised a total of $309.85. This was an amazing effort for such short notice and is a testimony to Scotch’s willingness to support and give back. The total money raised at Scotch was added to the Unley SOS fundraising page, where all the participants were able to raise just shy of $2000 over night. This was a great way to kick off the 2019 Red Shield Appeal.

Not only was this a great fundraising opportunity for Scotch students to get involved in, it was also an extremely insightful experience. On the night, 20-year-old Brodie shared his story of how he moved from being homeless on the streets, to his own house and found a great job. His journey was sad, but extremely inspiring. We also watched a documentary about youth homelessness which was eye-opening. 

Although the experience was cold and slightly uncomfortable, the Scotch students who participated gained a deeper understanding of youth homelessness. Scotch involvement this year has been incredible, and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve for the remainder of the year.
