Join us on the Coldest Night of the Year – February 22, 2020 – to help the hungry, hurting and homeless.
The Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) is an annual family-friendly, fundraiser walk to collect funds for Oakville’s hungry, hurting and homeless and to raise awareness about the growing challenges faced by members of our own safe, comfortable suburban community
We all love to hate winter, but imagine what it would be like without support, food, or a warm place to welcome you home: nothing short of brutal. In hundreds of cities all across Canada, thousands of participants will walk together in the chill of the night to experience just a hint of what it’s like to be on the streets during a cold winter’s night, while raising funds to aid the work of partner charities like Links2Care who have been bringing hope and help to the most vulnerable for 14 years.
Thanks to the partnership of the Town of Oakville, our CNOY walk will begin and end at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre, located at 2302 Bridges Road, Oakville. Between 4 and 8 pm, participants will register, turn in their fundraising efforts, don iconic CNOY toques and walk – warming up at rest stops along the way with toasty drinks. Unlike many of our clients, everyone can come safely inside at the end of the evening for a light celebration meal.
We hope you will join us to raise funds and awareness about the growing struggles of more and more people even in our safe, comfortable, suburban community. Click below or call us at 905-844-0252 to see how you can help.
