Sponsor our Team! Virtual Coldest Night of the Year Fundraiser – February 20
Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) Coldest Night of the Year 2021 – Richmond Hill (cnoy.org) is an event happening across the country to help raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger.
For the third year the local agency that provides local care for the homeless, MOSAIC Interfaith Out of the Cold, www.miotc.ca has been part of this charity walk held on the third Saturday in February.
The Mosaic Interfaith Out of the Cold Program provides safe refuge, warm hospitality, and emergency shelter in York Region to the homeless or those in need of food/clothing. Overnight shelters are operated by various interfaith communities on different nights of the week from November to March. This year, MIOTC has joined with Blue Door Shelters www.bluedoor.ca to meet the unique needs of vulnerable individuals.
The pandemic has meant the event will need to be virtual. The need is even greater this year. The costs for keeping everyone safe in the shelters has multiplied. The need of the individuals who find themselves homeless is greater. With so much shut down people who are homeless have lost many of the places they could retreat to.
