We understand these are difficult times and millions of Americans are unemployed and struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are not insensitive to the world around us but our youth are navigating the same world and have no one but Covenant House Pennsylvania to provide a home for them in these difficult times.
We recommend that before reaching out to your networks about the Sleep Out, you should be sure that you have already checked in with these individuals about where things stand for them during the pandemic. If you don’t know that they are healthy, their families are healthy and that they still are working and able to meet their own needs, then you need to check in before you recruit them to sleep out or make a donation to your sleep out efforts.
Though our three signature events have $1,000 fundraising goals we know they may be more difficult to reach right now and encourage everyone to do their best. (You are not responsible for unraised portions of your goal.) Sleep Out America does require a $25 self donation at registration but you can make your goal whatever you would like. All our portals allow you to create a team and have others join you.
If you have any other questions, then just contact Rob Zindell, Associate Director of Development, at email@example.com and he will gladly assist you.
$20: Our Covenant House staff are on the front lines keeping our young people safe during this unprecedented crisis. We need to keep staff healthy so they can continue their quietly heroic work with our kids. A $20 gift now will provide a box of masks or gloves for our teams working with sick/symptomatic youth.
$30: Our beds are full, and we are taking every precaution to keep our young people safe and protected. Your gift of $30 now will provide a box of linens so all our beds can stay germ-free.
$50: Many of the young people in our care were getting meals at the high schools and colleges they were attending. With all schools closed, Covenant House must fill this enormous gap. Your gift now of $50 will provide nutritious food to five young people in our care for an entire day.
$100: The coronavirus crisis has drastically increased our need for medical supplies. Your gift of $100 today will provide two days of emergency medical supplies for our healthcare teams who are working tirelessly to care for young people who have no one else.
$250: At the same time that our shelters are filled to capacity during the coronavirus crisis, we need to set up safe isolation places for sick/symptomatic youth in our care. Your $250 gift today will provide two clean, safe isolation places for our kids.
$500: All across the Americas, formerly homeless youth have worked hard work to achieve independence. Many have now lost their jobs due to the coronavirus outbreak. Your $500 gift today will provide 10 food baskets to help youth through these unprecedented times.
$1,000: Our front line staff is working 12-hour shifts, many of them six days a week, during this crisis. With great spirit and unconditional love, they risk their own health to protect our kids and surround them with support in uncertain times. With a $1,000 gift today, you can stand with our quiet heroes in spirit and provide one week of emergency personnel costs.
