I have accepted Covenant House’s challenge to spend a night sleeping on the street so homeless kids don’t have to.
The Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. It’s an act of solidarity with the 4.2 million young people who experience homelessness each year. It’s a decision that we can’t stay indoors while so many kids remain outside.
One night can make a difference.
As part of my Sleep Out, I am raising funds and awareness for Covenant House, a shelter for kids experiencing homelessness and trafficking. Covenant House offers these young people so much more than a safe place to sleep - they welcome each kid with absolute respect and unconditional love, and their continuum of care provides essential services to help kids transition from homelessness to independence.
Rachel Zegler will be starring as María in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming film adaptation of West Side Story, due to arrive in theaters on December 18, 2020. She can be followed on all social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) @rachelzegler.
