On the night of November 16, Los Angeles Location Member Nick Kublicki and his team of volunteers spent a night under the LA skies for Covenant House’s Sleep Out. Participants gathered for conversation, contemplation, education, and story sharing. Nick, charity coordinator of the Good Shepherd sandwiches for the homeless project, and his team were raising funds for Covenant House, which provides shelter for homeless youth. His team placed fourth of twenty-two teams in funds raised. Nick raised $7,800 and the team raised $44,450.

“Thanks to all who participated and contributed,” said Nick, “Because of everyone’s kindness, love, and caring, hundreds of homeless youth will be able to leave the dangerous streets and travel a safe path to full, productive lives. A brilliant light has been ignited to dispel the darkness. May God bless and protect our young people this Advent Season.”
