On February 20th students from Island Pacific School slept outside in the cold in support of homeless and at-risk youth here at Covenant House Vancouver. Before sleeping out they joined us in the afternoon to volunteer, helping us to sort through donated items. After that they were then given just $2 to find dinner before returning to Bowen Island to sleep out at their school.
Through their efforts, they raised an amazing $12,861 for Sleep Out: Student Edition! We want to send a huge “Thank You” to Island Pacific School for providing our young people with the care and support they need.
