Coldest Night of the Year, Saturday, February 26th
This is the fourth year of St. Peter's participation in the Coldest Night of the Year, a uniquely Canadian fundraising walk in support of the hurting, homeless and hungry in our community. Last year saw 149 walks in cities across Canada. Our Comox Valley walk raised $175,630 with $3,575 being raised by our St. Peter’s Comox team! Funds raised stay in the Comox Valley and will support:
- Dawn to Dawn, an organization which provides the homeless with access to safe housing
- Comox Valley Transition Society, offering support to homeless individuals and families, also operating the Connect Warming Centre in Courtenay, a safe, welcoming place for the vulnerable who are experiencing homelessness
We currently have six team members and are looking for many more to join us. This is a shout-out to all you folks in the Walking Group who are missing your Sunday walks! St. George’s also has a team and we would really like to beat them in funds raised this year. Can you help us by joining our team or by supporting one of our walkers?
