   Raytown High School students will raise funds for the plight of the homeless by hosting One Homeless Night on Friday, November 12 from 7:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m., Saturday, November 13.   
    
It is estimated that over 2000 young people go to sleep homeless every night in the Kansas City area.  The metro-wide “sleep-out” is planned to raise awareness around the issues of youth homelessness, as well as funds to help provide shelter, counseling and resources to youth in need.
    
Last year, National Honor Society at Raytown hosted this event and raised over $2000 for Synergy services.  About 90 people will participate by sleeping in cardboard boxes on the field.  The event will start in the auxiliary gym with activities and speakers from Synergy then move to the field.
