Menomonie church and Twin Cities non-profit host ‘Street-A-Thon’ raising awareness and funds for homeless children in Uganda
MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU) -Zoe Now out of the Twin Cities recently teamed up with Love Church in Menomonie to host a “Street-A-Thon,” helping to raise awareness for the ever-increasing population of abandoned children in Africa, often referred to as “Street-Kids.”
Participants slept outside overnight in the parking lot of Love Church as a representation of some of the struggle these children face on the street every night.
In addition to raising awareness, the hope is to raise funds for Zoe Now to purchase land and facilities in Uganda, Africa. This property will function as a center where these children will have a home to live in and be cared for while they receive an education and develop life skills.
Organizers join Hello Wisconsin live Monday, as they finish their 12 hour campaign.
The non-profit is looking to raise $35,000 and are nearly half way there, if you would like to help them meet their fundraising goal by December, please see here.
