COLDEST NIGHT--BIGGEST SUCCESS! 2/26/2020
Huge thanks to every person who walked, volunteered, donated or sponsored to make Coldest Night of the Year 2020 such a success for Northumberland. We are thrilled that together we have met our financial goal, but even more than the money, your caring act of solidarity--with our neighbours who are struggling with so many things—shows us that you see their humanity and understand that we are all in this together. There is no ‘us and them’.
CNOY proceeds support Green Wood’s street outreach where our approach is to build and maintain relationships of trust with individuals who may be struggling with substance dependence, homelessness or mental health concerns. These are folks who are often not connecting consistently with office-based, helping agencies.
Local business sponsors were a huge part of this year's Coldest Night of the Year success. We sincerely appreciate your generous support for people who are struggling in Northumberland.
