Waypoint SleepOut raises over $342,000 to aid homeless youth

The Waypoint 2020 SleepOut to raise awareness and funds to aid New Hampshire’s homeless youth was held this past Friday and Saturday (3/20-21). This year, in response to the coronavirus, the event was changed from community gatherings under open air tents in downtown Manchester and Exeter, to a virtual sleepout.  Approximately 120 participants slept out at home while their fundraising campaigns continued online, and sleepers shared photos on social media using the hashtag #NoRestUntil. Governor Chris Sununu, Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig, Congressman Chris Pappas, and Senator Maggie Hassan were among those who participated in and supported the event remotely this year.
