Pastor Becomes Homeless To Reach Out To Those In Need

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A local pastor will be back on Buffalo streets this week for his annual sleep-out to raise awareness about homelessness.

For 12 years now, Pastor Eric Johns of the Buffalo Dream Center has been spending several days on the streets of Buffalo to raise awareness about the plight of the homeless.

Reverend Johns will sleep outside and in shelters starting Monday and through Saturday. He will eat in soup kitchens and spend time with those who live on the streets. This is tied to his Boxes of Love campaign, which has a goal this year of providing food to 3,000 families and giving 5,000 wrapped Christmas gifts to needy children.
