External - Covenant House Toronto Women’s Sleep Out

Friday, May 24th 2019
6:45 PM to 7:00 AM
Toronto, ON

Covenant House Toronto is gearing up for another Sleep Out: Women Unite event to raise awareness and funds for at-risk, homeless and trafficked youth.

Women are coming together on Friday, May 24 to sleep out on a secured area of a downtown street for the night. The evening starts at Covenant House Toronto’s facilities learning about the breadth of programs they offer, meeting some of the youth who benefit from their support before we go out onto the street with a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard. Sleepers commit to raising $2,500; fundraising tips and support are provided to help each person reach this goal. Teams commit to an average of $2,500/team member which sometimes helps those for whom this goal is a stretch.

What is your reaction to the fact that the 61st session of the Commission on the Status of Women will be chaired by a man?
