Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal – ’40 Ways of Giving’ #2

We are excited to announce that our College community raised $2000 during Cedars Biggest Sleepout for the Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal to support the homeless and vulnerable in our local community.  Number 2 in our ’40 Ways of Giving’ to celebrate our 40th year, this event was planned and run by our College Captains and Chaplain, Carol Ramsey.

An initiative that began in 2020,  ‘Cedars Biggest Sleepout’ is an event where students (and our Chaplain) either slept outside in their backyard in a tent, or set up a fort in their living rooms.  Each participant was encouraged to decorate their ‘Sleepout’ area and get sponsorship from friends and family.

“The leadership our Captains exhibited in planning and running this event was wonderful and we are incredibly proud of all of our students who were involved,” said Carol.  “I love the fact that our students are thinking about others.   They are looking beyond themselves and helping to make a difference in the lives of those who are in need.  Our students are showing compassion, one of the wonderful characteristics of a Cedars student.”
