The COVID-19 pandemic impacted us all in some way or the other. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel; however, the challenge continues for about 6,000 youth who experience homelessness across Canada every night.
Covenant House’s Executive Sleep Out returns for its 10th year on November 18, 2021, with the goal to raise $1.1 million. For one night, executives and community leaders come together to support homeless, trafficked, or at-risk youth.
This year’s event invites sleepers to sleep out virtually at any designated site. For the fourth year in a row, I will give up the comforts of home and need your support in helping Covenant House reach its target.
Armed with a sleeping bag, I will be one of many business and community leaders sleeping in their backyards or balconies to raise awareness and show youth at Covenant House Toronto that they are not alone.
With your donation, Covenant House Toronto will provide the city’s homeless, trafficked, and at-risk youth shelter, medical care, counselling, and other support they need. 90% of every Sleep Out dollar raised goes towards Covenant House programs and the fight against COVID-19.
Sleep Out shows youth that we care and they should never have to sleep just anywhere. They deserve to feel safe, loved, cared for, and so much more.
Donate now and show that you care! On behalf of us at Activo and Covenant House – thank you!
