SAYRE, P.A. (WENY) - Dandy Mini Marts helped kickstart the The Bridge's 19th annual Sleepout awareness and fundraising campaign with a $5,000 donation presented last week.

The Sleepout is an annual event held over a 24-hour period starting at 3pm on the Friday after Thanksgiving and ending on Saturday at 3pm. 

It is aimed at raising funds and awareness for those in need in the community. 

Church and community business representatives take 1-hour blocks of time during the 24-hours and stay in the cold in a make shift home in the parking lot of the Guthrie Desmond Street Practice.

Dandy has been a longtime supporter of The Bridge over the years.
