On Thursday, January 29, Intelicare Direct (ICD), a leading customer service solutions company with offices in San Diego and Las Vegas hosted its second “Pancakes and Pajamas” day benefitting StandUp For Kids, a non-profit organization that works to put an end to youth homelessness.
ICD donated hygiene kits, up to 35 sleeping bags and 20 tents for every employee that came to work in their pajamas. Gabriel Bristol, CEO of ICD has first hand experience of what it’s like to live on the streets, “I know how these kids feel—to not know where their next meal is coming from or the next time they will have a roof over their head.” His experience has lead him to do all he can to help others not go through the same thing as him.
There are over 2,000 homeless youth on the streets in San Diego. StandUp For Kids provides services for homeless youth 21 and under in downtown San Diego. It gives them a place where they can have a meal, shower, laundry, phone, Internet and participate in recreational activities. They also provide valuable services to help the youth change their situations like housing, career and legal counseling. StandUp For Kids also sends teams of volunteers to do outreach four nights a week to provide kids on the street with food, hygiene, socks and some larger items such as tents and sleeping bags.
“Given that our organization is run entirely by volunteers, we rely heavily on contributions from individuals and companies like Intelicare Direct,” said Terilyn Burg, volunteer executive director of StandUp For Kids San Diego. “We are honored that they chose us as their beneficiary for a second year. A donation as simple as a sleeping bag or tent can drastically improve the quality of life for these children.”
