The #CHVCatchUp is a new monthly series featuring the latest updates and news from Covenant House Vancouver. Miss604 is proud to be the Official Blog Partner of CHV.
On Friday, July 10th Covenant House Vancouver will host its first virtual Sleep Out: Home Edition. As a virtual event, Covenant House is encouraging people to Sleep Out “together” in solidarity with homeless youth while remaining physically apart to raise funds and awareness for youth experiencing homelessness.
Covenant House Sleep Out: Home Edition
Registration: $20 per person and will remain open until July 10, 2020. Sleep Out: Home Edition is open to all ages.
Covenant House is challenging individuals, families, and businesses to spend one night on their living room floor, on their balcony or in their backyard, and raise crucial funds to support the Street Outreach Program.
This is a special opportunity to be a part of a positive movement that will bring the community together to help the most vulnerable youth. This event aims to raise $100,000 for the program.
Sleepers choose where and how they Sleep Out (somewhere safe and legal). This flexible event allows you to have an impact on youth experiencing homelessness while choosing what your event day/evening looks like. Many participants will Sleep Out in their own backyards, while others Sleep Out in their living rooms and on their kitchen floors.
Covenant House Vancouver will provide online programming the evening of the event and the morning after.
I participated in the Covenant House Sleep Out for four years. It was uncomfortable, unnerving, and a long and sleepless night — but that’s the point. It’s all for an amazing cause and very worthy of your participation. Read about my first experience in 2013 here, which kept me coming back to support the cause.
