BENEFITING: Covenant House
ORGANIZER: Covenant House
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
For the last 3 ½ years, I’ve spent my Monday nights at Covenant House NYC with the New York Junior League, helping teach the kids essential life skills they’ll need to move forward and reach their dreams, like personal finance, resume writing, job interview skills, and eating well on a budget. Even though they’ve been through things we really can’t imagine (many have been abandoned, abused, or trafficked), they haven’t let it dampen their dreams. They want to get their high school diplomas, go to college, get a good job and build a life. They’re enthusiastic and motivated, and so grateful for the help they’re getting. It’s been, and continues to be, a real privilege to spend even an hour with them once a week.
Help me raise money to support the efforts of Covenant House, which go far beyond giving homeless kids food and shelter. From psychological services and counseling, job training and GED prep to legal and health care services, what Covenant House is really providing is a fresh start to kids who really need it.
