Here’s a different kind of fundraiser: the national “Sleep Out America,” to benefit Covenant House, an organization that shelters and cares for kids facing homelessness and hunger. Locally, Kim Strong, of Lainey’s Army, will be sleeping outside to raise money for this great cause. You can donate, or get more information, at SleepOutAmerica.org
