Out of the Cold 2021

Out of the Cold 2021

About This Campaign

An estimated 13,300 youth in Minnesota experience homelessness over the course of a year. They are some of the least visible and most vulnerable people experiencing homelessness. HOPE 4 Youth's OUT OF THE COLD campaign will run November 1-18, 2021. This three-week fundraising campaign raises awareness of youth homelessness and funds to support them during the cold winter months.


  • Go “out in the cold” for an hour (or more) between November 1-18. You choose the date/time and where you will be "out in the cold" - your backyard, a business/school parking lot, a park, up in a tree stand, or anywhere you'd like! This is a great opportunity for groups. During your time outside, post your experience on social media (#outofthecold) and encourage your network to donate to your online fundraising page. To sign up, click the REGISTER or PARTICIPATE buttons.

  • Help us raise critical funds for HOPE 4 Youth. Use our easy, online tool to fundraise within your network. To set up your team or individual fundraising page, click the REGISTER or PARTICIPATE buttons. 

  • Join us at our Final Freeze drive-thru event on Thursday, November 18 between 4-8 p.m. at the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office in Andover. Drop off donations, say hello to some special guests and let us thank you in person. Donations accepted: cash/checks, giftcards (gas, Target, Walmart), new winter hats and gloves (waterproof), and canned soup (Progresso or Chunky).

  • Partner with us. We need businesses and individuals to sponsor the campaign. All partners will be highlighted on our social media platforms, named/linked on our website, and receive other promotional opportunities during your designated time and at the Final Freeze event. Options: HOPE Partner (support the whole campaign, $5,000/three weeks) and Day Partner (support one day of the campaign, $500/day). Click the SPONSOR button on the right to get started.
