We need volunteers for our Thank-a-Thon Program

We need volunteers for our Thank-a-Thon Program

Thank-a-Thons are fun-filled evenings where volunteers get together and call our donors just to say “thank-you”. Because we are primarily privately funded, it is important for us to be able to reach our donors and thank them personally for the difference they make in our young peoples’ lives.

Volunteers will meet at Covenant House two evenings a week from 5:00pm-7:30pm. You can sign up to volunteer for one Thank-a-Thon or as many as you like!

Hip Hip Hooray for Hype Hair Studio

On Friday October 14th, we had 7 amazing and generous hair stylists from Hype Hair Studio  come in and volunteer to provide free haircuts to our female clients. Not only did they give them amazing haircuts & styles but they put smiles on their faces too. The stylists also donated hair care products and clothing for our young ladies.

We are so extremely grateful for all your support last week Hype Hair volunteers. Thanks for providing our youth with this incredible opportunity!

Our youth thank our volunteers with art!

Our youth thank Covenant House volunteers with art!

Young people in our Crisis Program created wonderful pictures of art as a thank you for the volunteers in that program. Volunteers mean the world not only to our staff but to our young people as well. Knowing someone cares enough about them to spend time with them  is incredibly impactful and helps make our youth feel loved unconditionally.

Check out some of the artwork below:

Big “thank you” to all our community & corporate volunteers groups who have helped us over the past year. We appreciated all your time and effort in support of the youth we serve.
