For too many Cochrane residents, the cold weather presents more challenges than simply shoveling snow and putting winter tires on the car. People who are unhoused face hardships most of us can’t imagine, from the struggle to find a safe, warm place to rest to the absence of warm winter clothes and healthy food.
The Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly walk developed to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. This fundraiser is designed to help us realize the many challenges faced by the less-fortunate members of our society. In Cochrane, the event is being hosted by Helping Hands, with the support of an incredible number of sponsors and volunteers.
