On November 16th Dan Coldwell, CMO for PACE Credit Union, participated in the Covenant House’s 6th annual Executive Sleep Out. For one night Toronto executives were exposed to the discomfort and vulnerability of sleeping in the streets, an experience that is at best only a small window into the exhausting life of homeless youth. Behind each young person living on the street there is a story, there is a family and there are dreams and aspirations. The Executive Sleep Out is an amazing initiative to raise money to help these youth get off the street and back on their feet, but it is also a unique lesson in how hard it is to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness while enduring the elements. These young people cannot do it alone!
The Covenant House does an amazing job of giving shelter and guidance to young people in many cities. Dan and the other Exececutives raised $1.1 million for this cause and PACE is proud to be supporting the Covenant House.
