Coldest Night walk will support needs of homeless in Burlington


Published February 23, 2024 at 5:29 pm

If you are a person who lives on the streets, every night can be considered the coldest night of the year.

But for those fortunate to have shelter, lending a hand to those who regularly do without is the least that can be done.

Such will be the case when walkers from across the city come together tomorrow (Feb. 24) to take part in the Coldest Night of the Year fundraising campaign.

Participants will be taking part to raise funds and bring awareness to homelessness and hunger issues that are increasingly becoming a part of the community.

Most of the funds raised will be directed to Open Doors, the outreach ministry of St. Christopher’s Anglican Church in Burlington. Open Doors serves fresh meals and operates a food bank for clients as well as offering clothing to those in need.

The walk — there are two distances this year, 5 km and 2 km — will begin and end at St. Christopher’s, 662 Guelph Line. Check-in starts at 4 p.m.
