HealthHub’s CEO to Sleep Out in Support of Youth at Covenant House

_____

TORONTO, November 8, 2021 – On November 18, Larry MacGirr, Chief Executive Officer of HealthHub, will be among the executives and community leaders sleeping out and raising much-needed funds for the youth at Covenant House Toronto.

The 10th annual Covenant House Sleep Out Executive Edition aims to help put youth homelessness to bed by raising over $1 million in one night. Last year, participants exceeded their fundraising goal, bringing the total raised to-date to more than $9 million for all Sleep Out events.

Executives can sleep out at a location of their choice, whether it be in their own backyards, living room or on their balcony. Wherever they choose to spend the night, sleepers will take part in a powerful and immersive experience.

Covenant House has remained open 24-7 to the most vulnerable young people during these very trying times. Events like the Executive Sleep Out are critical to the agency, which relies on the majority of its funding from donors. 90% of every dollar raised goes directly to programs and services that benefit youth in need right here in our city.

“I’ve participated in this event for several years now,” says Larry McGirr. “It’s cold. And it’s dark. But for one night, I’m happy to give up the comforts of home knowing it will bring support to the young people in Toronto who need it most. This event helps ensure youth have access to essential services and the tools they need to change their lives, and I’m proud to be part of it.”

Mark Aston, Covenant House Toronto’s executive director, says that participation in Sleep Out Executive Edition helps bring awareness to the complex issues of youth homelessness and sex trafficking. It shows a commitment to helping youth in need, no matter the circumstances.

“For 10 years business leaders and executives have shown the youth at Covenant House that they deserve to feel safe, loved, cared for and so much more. It is a great privilege for me to witness the impact of their unrelenting support every day. Because of that support, these remarkable young people are able to work towards a better future,” Aston adds.

As Canada’s largest agency serving youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk, Covenant House offers the widest range of 24-7 services to up to 300 young people each day. Since 1982, the organization has supported more than 100,000 young people.
