Charlie Manuel Will Be Sleeping on the Street for Charity

Eric Hartline - USA Today Sports

Always knew Charlie Manuel was a good dude.

In a few weeks, he’ll be sleeping outside on a Philly street along with Larry Bowa and Phillies executives to raise money for the Covenant House “Sleep Out” program, which supports homeless youth.

Here’s the blurb on the fundraiser page:

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.

Charlie went on Twitter to explain that his family had “11 kids and a I grew up poor,” so it’s a cause he can relate to. As of publication, $1,415 of the $5,000 goal has already been raised.

    He’s all growed up and he probably would spend it on a cup of coffee.
