Siouxland Sleep-Out meets goals

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- Organizers for the Siouxland Sleep-Out say they had great turnout this year.

The Sleep-Out, held last month at Lewis and Clark Park, is a fundraiser aimed at reducing homelessness in Siouxland.

Final tallies are still being calculated, but organizers say they hoped for a couple hundred people, and ended up with 237.

They also made their fund raising goal.

"Our goal of reaching $50,000 has been surpassed, so that brings our 5 year total to over $200,000 that we've raised for the efforts to end homelessness in Siouxland," said Sleep-Out Director Willie Delfs.

Delfs says some money is still coming in.

Governor Culver has also acknowledged Sioux City's work with the sleep-out in a proclamation that will be on display at City Hall.
