Reggie's Sleepout ~ Virtual Event Volunteers


Reggie’s Sleepout is a virtual hybrid event that asks participants to fundraise and sleepout in their own backyards to raise awareness and funds to support homeless youth here in Des Moines. This year’s event will run from Sept. 24 to Oct. 3 and registration is $25 for an individual or a family. More info about the event and register at

Canvass your neighborhood:
• Volunteer your time canvassing neighborhoods in your community to invite others to sleepout to fight youth homelessness.
• Choose whether you would like to canvass the area around your neighborhood and/or another neighborhood in your community.
• Cover about 5 blocks by 5 blocks (less than 150 households); approx. 2-3 hour commitment.
• Volunteers are needed until mid-September. Doorstickers, maps and instructions will be available for pickup at our location once we have contacted you.

YSS staff also need volunteers to assist with distribution of yard signs to folks who register. Volunteers will need a vehicle and will be given a list of 5-10 addresses within 20 minutes of each other with the option to distribute more. Time commitment is roughly 2 hrs.
