BENEFITING: Covenant House
ORGANIZER: Covenant House
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
I visited Covenant House right before Christmas. It is a humbling experience and one that has helped provide me with perspective. I'm in awe of the employees, volunteers, and kids of Covenant House, working to make life better for others and for themselves. This is why I'm participating in the Sleep Out and running in the Half.
The Sleep Out Movement:
The Sleep Out Movement is an opportunity for all of us to come together and make an immediate and lasting impact on the homeless young people who live at Covenant House.
The sleepout includes taking a sleeping back and sleeping outside on the grounds of Covenant House, but the movement iisn't about pretending to be homeless. It is to show respect and love for a group of kids - proving that you care enough about them to be uncomfortable for one night, to be vulnerable for their sakes.
The funds raised by Sleep Out participants are put to work immediately, keeping the lights on and the doors open for the thousands of kids who will seek help this year.
