Every November, several NWIA REALTOR® members participate in the Siouxland Sleepout. These folks voluntarily sleep outside on the ball field of the Sioux City Explorers to bring awareness to the plight of homeless members of our community.
In addition to the REALTOR® support, our own Heather Frigge participates in the event as a representative of our NWIA board. Heather always enjoys incorporating a creative theme into her cardboard box structure. This year she plans to use shoes to help shed light on the challenges facing the homeless in our community.
In support of her theme, the board office is conducting a shoe drive.
Members, please go into your closet and find a pair of gently used shoes to donate. Footwear for men, women, and children of all sizes and styles is needed.
All donations will be taken to area shelters to be used by those in need.
Shoes can be dropped off at the Board Office anytime between now and Thursday, November 10. If you prefer, call Heather at (712) 255-8810 and she’ll happily pick them up from your office.
Cash donations in support of the Siouxland Sleepout are also being accepted at the board office. The Sleepout event will take place on November 4.
Thank you in advance for your support of the most vulnerable members of our community, and for helping our board to meet one of the NAR Core Standards.
