Sleeping out in the street is the most humbling experience I have ever felt. I can’t imagine a kid having to endure this all alone for even one single night.
Horsham, PA (PRWEB) November 12, 2015
Each November, business leaders across North America spend one night sleeping on the streets to help runaway, homeless, and trafficked youth as part of the Covenant House Sleep Out: Executive Edition. This year, twenty-eight Toll Brothers executives will participate at four different Covenant House shelters in an effort to raise awareness and monetary support for the work that is being done at Covenant House.
On Thursday, November 19, 2015, the Toll Brothers team will begin their evening by attending candlelight vigils, memorial services, and activities at the crisis shelters including dinner, workshops, and interaction with the youth of Covenant House.
“We welcome the Toll Brothers team again,” said Kevin Ryan, President of Covenant House International. We are thrilled to have them back in Philadelphia, Orlando, Atlantic City, and now Detroit! These sleep outs raise awareness and millions of dollars to help the organization’s work. Not only that, but it shows our kids that we at Covenant House support them, value them and truly care about them, which far too many of our kids haven’t felt nearly enough in their lives.”
“Sleeping out in the street is the most humbling experience I have ever felt. I can’t imagine a kid having to endure this all alone for even one single night”, said Chris Gaffney, Group President of Toll Brothers and Board Member of Covenant House Pennsylvania. “I am proud to have so many of my fellow Toll Brothers peers helping me again in this meaningful and life changing event.”
