The church's youth group and their chaperones will spend the night outdoors, as the front lawn becomes a “box city,” with the youth setting up boxes as temporary shelter. The kids are seeking sponsors for the night, with the funds going to First Step Inn, a homeless shelter in Fall River.
Donations can be sent to Amicable Church, 3736 Main Road, Tiverton, RI 02878, with checks made out to First Step Inn.
