Matt Haley tells our sister station Delaware 105.9 that his efforts are part of a national push by the Covenant House.
"Every child describes a bed and a meal, and so once a year, there's a nationwide sleep-out and myself and a few friends of mine are participating in the sleep-out in Washington, D.C.
Haley says there's up to 5,000 children in our nation's capital every night who sleep on the streets.
"We sleep on Mississippi Avenue in a pretty volatile neighborhood, and we do that so we can raise awareness, raise some money to help these children," he says.
Haley's sleep-out will take place on November 21st from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., and he plans to match all donations up to$2,500.
