On June 15, Delbarton was honored with the Beacon of Hope Award from Covenant House New Jersey. Delbarton hosts a Solidarity Sleep Out each year, and the School was one of three recipients of the award. From the Covenant House website, "The Beacon of Hope Award is a distinguished honor bestowed upon members of our Covenant House New Jersey Community who exhibit extraordinary service to our young people and our mission." Read about our 2022 Sleep Out here which raised over $70,000 and put Delbarton over the $500,000 mark for total donations to Covenent House over the School's seven annual Sleep Outs.
Assistant Director of Mission and Ministry Br. Finnbar McEvoy O.S.B. accepted the award on behalf of Delbarton. Also in attendance at the event were Aidan Hassan '22, who helped to organize this year's Solidarity Sleep Out, as well as members of the Class of 2016 Dan Cimaglia, Andrew Sanders, Nick Diana, and Sean Hager who were instrumental in launching our first Covenant House Sleep Out during their sophomore year.
Thank you to all who have supported this very worthy cause over the past seven years at Delbarton!
