Please join us for our Can YOU Survive The Night event beginning Friday, October 7th at 7:00 pm until Saturday, October 8th at 7:00 am. This event is to simulate the experience that our homeless population goes through each night when they are without shelter in our community. Bring your own supplies and camp out for a night at Mitchell Creek Park with OBK staff, volunteers, board members, and other participants. Pizza will be provided in the evening and donuts and coffee will be provided for breakfast.
