Walk on February 20, 2021!
It's that time of the year again where we invite you to participate in Metro's biggest fundraiser of the year. For our 6th straight year, we will be having Coldest Night of the Year on Saturday, Feb 20, 2021. Our fundraiser will be looking a little different this year, and are unable to walk together as a large group due to restrictions. Instead, people from our community are encouraged to walk with people in their social bubble to raise awareness and support the people experiencing homelessness. You can walk in your neighbourhood, or anywhere of your choosing. You can choose to walk at whatever time suits you on Saturday, Feb 20, 2021. This year we want to reach our goal of $55,000, which will be used to help Metro Central provide meals and refreshments (roughly 45 to 75 visitors per day), daily supplies for the new hygiene program which will offer showers, laundry and case management), along with the day to day needs to keep Metro Central safe, healthy and functional (heat, power, janitorial, security, etc.). Last year all of the proceeds went towards the building of our new Metro Central Courtyard which is heavily used and appreciated in our community. getting involved - Coldest Night of the Year is a chance to be a part of something big within our community.
