The football field at Spaulding High School will look a little different Friday, March 25, as tents, sleeping bags and firepits will take over the space.
Waypoint’s SleepOut 2022 will be held March 25, an event raising awareness and money to support homeless youth, with sponsored participants sleeping outside in the cold for one night.
Police and other city officials will join staff and students at Spaulding High School, and they are raising money to support Waypoint’s efforts.
Nicole Rodler, juvenile services coordinator for Rochester police, is putting together the city team. There’s a school team, too.
“Waypoint is 100% a partner for me,” Rodler said. “I came here from Manchester police, so I am very familiar with their work with youth homelessness, and I am thrilled to be working to help as this happens in Rochester. I support their work, and for me this event is a no-brainer.”
