Terrie's Sleeping Out In Newark!

Terrie is planning to sleep out on the streets of Newark on Thursday, November 16 so homeless kids don't have to! 

Yes, you read it right! It may be cold and uncomfortable but she is committed to being a part of the Covenant House Sleep Out and sending a message to all the homeless kids in New Jersey that they are not alone. She has had the privilege of visiting Covenant House in Newark and was very inspired by their mission to serve homeless youth between the ages of 18 and 21 and help them build better lives.

And...she is hoping you will consider joining her team! Do you think we could get at least 2 agents per office? That would be an amazing team and would make a real difference for homeless youth!

A few important details:

1. The fundraiser will be held at the Covenant House Crisis Center in Newark in their fenced in parking lot. There will be security and we will be safe. We will arrive at 7:00 pm, and participate in awareness programs and have the opportunity to meet some of Covenant House's beautiful youth. We will head out to the parking lot around 11:00 pm with our sleeping bag and cardboard box (provided) to experience just a little bit of what these young people have gone through when they were homeless. The program will conclude in the morning around 7 am.

2. Everyone is asked to set a $5000 fundraising goal and to send their fundraising letter to at least 25 friends and family. Please don't let the $5000 goal scare you away if this is an event you want to be a part of. We just hope that everyone will give it their best by reaching out to all of their contacts and posting on social media as well. Covenant House staff will be helping us all along the way with fundraising tips and inspiring stories to share.

3. To register, simply click here and then click on Join Terrie's Team.  If you need help getting registered, please reach out to ToniMarie at Covenant House at tdipietro@covenanthouse.org , 973-286-3433. She is happy to help!

If you cannot join us...please consider getting behind those in your office who can! How wonderful will it be for all of us who spend our days finding homes for our customers to help homeless kids get off the streets and on their way to a home of their own.
