Executive Edition: New York

Welcome to John Strobeck's Sleep Out Page

Welcome to My Personal Page

I am sleeping out in the cold on a piece of cardboard on November 21 so that homeless youth don't have to and so I can become more aware of the pain and struggles of the homeless. It will be dark. It will be tough and uncomfortable. But for one night, I can give up the comforts of home knowing it can bring warmth, shelter, and hope to young people who need it most.

Each year in 21 cities across North America, Covenant House cares for over 50,000 at-risk and homeless kids in their journey from the street to safety, and ultimately, to independence.

By participating in this event I am doing my small part to make sure the doors stay open for all who need them. It is with sincere pride that I take on this challenge alongside fellow business leaders and Saddle River, NJ parents.

Anything you can contribute to help me in this effort would be greatly appreciated.
