Executive Sleep Out 2019
The number of homeless students in New York City could fill Yankee Stadium 2+ times.
On November 14, 2019, members of the Leesa executive team participated in Covenant House's Executive Sleep Out (part of Sleep Out America) in New York City. Thousands of business leaders of all ages and from different backgrounds came together in Yankee Stadium to raise funds and awareness for the ever-growing homeless youth population in the US. All of the money raised goes directly to Covenant House, a nonprofit that provides shelter and care for homeless youth.
Together, the Leesa team raised more than $20,000 for Sleep Out America. This year's executive Sleep Out was the largest to-date, raising more than $1.6 million.
Funds raised from Sleep Out America go to Covenant House and are used for food, clothing, shelter, medical attention, education, job training and short and long-term housing for homeless youth.
