The legislators and their district office team accepted the Covenant House challenge to spend a night in solidarity with the 4.2 million homeless youth in America. The Sleep Out will be held on Thursday, March 24 at 7 p.m. until the morning.

When:  Thursday, March 24 from 7 p.m. – 6 a.m.

Where: Office parking lot at 668 Main Street, Lumberton, NJ

If you would like to cover the event, feel free to show up or call District 8 Chief of Staff Brian Woods at 609-667-7360 to set up a time.

The District 8 team has already raised close to $4,000, but is pushing hard in the final week to raise more. If you’d like to donate, you can do so at the link below:

Funds will go directly to Covenant House and its mission to help youth who have suffered from abuse, neglect, abandonment, homelessness, and human trafficking.

The Sleep Out fulfills Stanfield, Torrissi, and Umba’s pledge to do a “District Day of Service” every month. The District 8 team and their staff have painted and stocked a domestic violence safe house, provided more than 1,000 free meals for seniors in need, gleaned hundreds of pounds of produce from farms for food pantries, collected diapers for women and infants in need, and much more.
