This collection drive will provide us with practical necessities our kids desperately need. It will also show our kids that people care, which is a lifesaving message for a homeless kid.
Horsham, PA (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
During the month of September, Toll Brothers, the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, is holding a collection drive at many communities nationwide to support the homeless youth of Covenant House. Covenant House provides shelter and care while supporting kids to strive for a better future.
“Every day homeless kids come into our shelters across the country with nothing but the clothes on their backs,” said Covenant House President Kevin Ryan. “This collection drive will provide us with practical necessities our kids desperately need. It will also show our kids that people care, which is a lifesaving message for a homeless kid. We are very grateful to Toll Brothers for organizing this nationwide show of support for our kids,” he added.
Toll Brothers’ September 2012 collection drive will not only provide essential clothing and home items, but Toll Brothers will also assist in obtaining professional clothing to help Covenant House youth with job interviews that will allow them to be self sufficient, financially independent, and have a life off the streets.
“This is just a small way that we can work with our neighbors and partners to give back to those in need within our local communities,” said Chris Gaffney, Toll Brothers Group President and member of the Covenant House Board of Directors.
