Toowoomba’s business and community leaders slept on the streets during Vinnies Community Sleepout to raise funds and awareness for homelessness on Thursday, 27 July. Temperatures dropped to eight degrees as the 79 participants slept on a single piece of cardboard. More than $66,000 was raised and will be used to remodel properties purchased to add to the St Vincent de Paul Society Toowomba’s housing portfolio.
