We are in this together
Though Coldest Night of the Year is being discontinued, the fundraiser is still giving back
We just wanted to reach out and let folks know that although we are unable to continue the Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser as we have done in 2017 and 2018, due to the increased volume of work we already do for the hurting, hungry and homeless in Cranbrook, that we have some funds still available to help within our community.
We are disturbed by the food theft from Street Angels as we work closely with the same community members they serve. Their food services are so crucial to promoting health for those who are struggling to make ends meet. No agency is able to do the work we do without each other; we are in this together.
We also commend the Mount Baker Secondary School student Leadership Program for their efforts to rally students into action and help replace what was taken from Street Angels and our community.
To honour our fellow service agency, Mount Baker Secondary School and our valuable, vulnerable community citizens, we are pleased to be able to pass along $1,000 of Coldest Night Funds to once again help the hurting, hungry and homeless in our community.
We encourage our community to give often and give well if and where they can, because we can’t do what we do without them and we are indeed in this together.

Coordinators, Cranbrook Homeless Outreach & Prevention
