We are proud to announce that we will be hosting another Charity Workout this Saturday, May 2nd at 9am!!Proceeds will go to the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness’ COVID response efforts. CCEH leads Connecticut’s statewide effort to end homelessness by coordinating the efforts of 100 organizations across the state.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, CCEH was working to reduce the number of people who experience homelessness by scaling up prevention and re-housing efforts. But the arrival of the pandemic temporarily shifted our focus as we realized that homeless shelters, where people sleep inches apart and use common spaces, were vulnerable to COVID outbreaks and community spread. Realizing that it’s impossible to stay safe at home if you don’t have a home, CCEH worked to lead a statewide effort to “decompress” shelters. CCEH convinced the state to contract with 15 hotels to move 900 households out of shelters into hotels, where they can stay safe and social distance.
Please help us help this great organization by donating, showing up and getting a great workout in!
