The Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc. is excited to announce the 2nd Annual Night at the Shelter SleepOut will be held October 4-5, 2013 at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport. The Night at the Shelter SleepOut is designed to bring awareness about homelessness in the Quad City community and raise funds to help provide beds and support for homeless persons served at the Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc.

Gather your family and friends and join us for an enlightening, fun-filled night to help fight homelessness in the QC area. Participate in the “Build Your Own Shelter” contest and stay the night in what you build. Activities throughout the evening will include: live music, performance by Comedy Sportz, games, food, poverty simulation, and an outdoor movie on the Modern Woodmen Park Jumbo screen. General admission to this event is $10 per person, although we hope you will help us raise additional funds by asking everyone you know to sponsor your efforts to help the homeless. No amount is too small and a $10 donation will support a bed for one night. Your participation in this event will help ensure the continuation of shelter services to homeless men and women in the QC area well into the future. Visit www.humilityofmaryshelter.com for more information and to print off your registration and donor materials.

New this year, your donation could be matched! The Congregation of the Humility of Mary has established a goal of raising $250,000 from April 1, 2013 – April 30, 2014. As a challenge and inspiration, the Congregation of the Humility of Mary sisters will match dollar for dollar the first $100,000 raised. This is to encourage new and/or increased donations from the Quad City community to support and ensure the continued operation of the Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc.

Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc. provides emergency shelter, transitional and permanent supporting housing programs that offer opportunities for men and women experiencing homelessness to become emotionally, mentally, and physically more stable.

The shelter is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has proudly served the Quad City community since 2008.

"The Life and Times of Jonathan Edward Caldwell, Inventor of the Round-Wing Plane"
Jonathan Edward Caldwell (born March 24, 1883, date of death unknown) was a self-taught aeronautical engineer who designed a series of bizarre aircraft and started public companies in order to finance their construction. None of these was ever successful, and after his last known attempt in the later 1930s he disappeared.
Independent Scholar Michael Grady will explore theories on why Caldwell suddenly disappeared never to be heard from again, how his round wing planes may have further evolved, and the incredibly shocking, painstakingly researched disclosures of Caldwell's Independent Scholar biographer.
