Abby's House

Hello everyone!


We are gearing up for another homeless winter sleepout event. For those of you who are not familiar with this event, we will spend all day outside in the parking lot at 45 Colonial Plaza on East Main St., Saturday February 25th. Then we will sleep outside in the parking lot overnight to raise money and awareness for those experiencing homelessness throughout the state.


This year's beneficiary will be Abby's House of Worcester. We are striving to help forward their mission "to provide shelter and affordable housing, as well as advocacy and support services, to homeless, battered, and low-income women, with or without children."


Every dollar helps. Abby's House (Abby Kelley Foster House, Inc.) has helped more than 15,000 women and their children reclaim and rebuild their lives, empowering them to lead self-directed lives filled with dignity and hope. For more information visit


Any donation you can give at this time is greatly appreciated and will go a long way toward helping people in their time of need.  


Thank you


John Bogaert


I am happy to announce that this year we will be getting valuable assistance from Westborough High School students! The Help the Homeless Club will be assisting and promoting the event, and other WHS students will be joining in the sleepout on the day of the event!

No one should be left out in the cold.

Thank you to our donors. Your generosity has been overwhelming. It has already, and will continue to really make a difference to many in need.

Thank you to all of the individuals and companies who have been donating their time and materials to A Night In The Cold since 2021. 

Thank you for your generous support of this cause.
