BRAVE bosses in the Fraser Coast will spend a night on the streets this month to help raise awareness of homelessness in the region.

The appeal, which was an initiative from Forty Winks, will help to provide light weight sleeping swags to local people in need, to help them get a better night's sleep.

About 24 people have already signed up to be part of the Swag-a-Boss appeal, and will purchase sleeping swags to support disadvantaged people on the Fraser Coast.

Bosses will also spend a night on the streets as part of the appeal, with participating employers experiencing sleeping out in Scarness Park on Friday, November 30.

Fraser Coast businesses wanting to join the Swag-a-Boss appeal and support people in need can join the program or find out more by contacting the Fraser Coast Chronicle's marketing coordinator Rose Lovat on 41201016 or by emailing rose.lovat@frasercoastchronicle.com.au.
