The Escape Room Supports Dayspring Center!
You and your team are locked in a room where you have 60 minutes to find clues, solve puzzles, and discover keys and combinations to escape the room before your time is up! If you are looking for a fun team-building experience or a fun, adventurous experience with friends/family, then get on-line today and book your themed room at The Escape Room Indianapolis or Fishers location.
The Escape Room works with Dayspring Center throughout the year, helping to meet the needs of Indy’s homeless children:
When you book your room, enter the code DAYSPRINGX356U in the promotion cell. A portion of every ticket sold will help to provide critical care to local homeless children while at Dayspring Center.
HOW IT WORKS:
Friends, corporate teams and social groups of 6 to 12 people will select from five themed rooms and begin a fascinating journey of deciphering, strategizing, and maneuvering to exit their room. Brace yourself for the best live entertainment experience of your life!
“A Paycheck Away”-Could You Get Out of Homelessness?
Mindblowing. Heartbreaking. Real life. Inspiring.
These are all words players have used to describe A Paycheck Away, a board game that puts you in the shoes of a real homeless person or family. Players represent one of the four “real-life” homeless characters and assume the individual circumstances that lead them to become homeless. The object of the game is to get yourself and as many of your teammates as possible out of homelessness within 3 months. You will never look at homelessness the same way again!
A Paycheck Away was developed by Bottom Line Performance, a learning game solutions company, in partnership with Dayspring Center Family Emergency Shelter.
Community/Corporate groups may schedule a game session by contacting Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org. Game sessions require a minimum of two (2) hours to complete.
Adopt-a-Family — November/December 2017
As a parent, we have all felt the joy and excitement of watching our children unwrap a gift we chose especially for them on Christmas morning. We hope YOU will understand why we hope to give that same sense of excitement and joy to a homeless parent who cannot afford even the smallest of gifts for their child. This year, we are asking friends and partners of Dayspring Center to help us to give homeless parents the financials means to shop for their children. Accompanied by their Case Manager, parents at Dayspring will be allotted gift cards to do their family’s holiday shopping this year as part of our annual Adopt-a-Family Program. For the first time in months, a homeless parent will feel a sense of accomplishment and joy “giving” to their children again.
Our goal is to provide a $100 gift card to a parent for each child. Gift cards from any one of the following retailers would help: Wal-Mart, Target, Meijer, Kohls, Kroger, Marsh, Aldi, Visa or Mastercard. Please contact Monica Douthitt at email@example.com to sponsor a family.
On behalf of the 55 homeless families adopted by Indy families, churches and companies over the holiday season – thank you for your generous hearts!
