Coldest Night of the Year
THANK YOU, WHITE ROCK!
Through your generous and compassionate efforts, we exceeded our fundraising goal and will be able to help more people in our community to stay safe, warm and housed!
SOURCES hosted the 6th Annual Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) in White Rock on February 23, 2019. We acknowledge that this event and our work takes place on the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish People, specifically the Kwantlen, Katzie and Semiahmoo First Nations.
Close to 500 community members—including team captains, walkers, route marshalls, volunteers, local politicians, sponsors and staff—gathered to help prevent homelessness in our community.
Because of you, this was our most successful year yet!
The funds we raised together will help vulnerable people in our community who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Learn more about the programs you’re supporting: Homelessness Prevention Services and Rent Bank.
And you know what’s really COOL? Out of 134 locations hosting CNOY events across Canada, our WHITE ROCK location ranked #8 on Event Day for dollars fundraised!
We are so proud to be part of this nationwide event that raised over $5,300,000 for charities that help the hungry, homeless and hurting. We are especially excited about the $106,000+ we’ve raised right here in our City by the Sea. Thank you for all of your heartwarming support.
“We are very excited to be sponsoring the Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) for the 4th year in a row. The Homelessness Prevention Services that SOURCES runs are very important to the community. The stories we have heard from folks helped by programs like the Sources Rent Bank really make this clear; it demonstrates how easily one can end up on the verge of homelessness, and that a bit of assistance can go a long way.
We are very fortunate to live where we do, but there are people in our community without shelter or at risk of becoming homeless. CNOY is a great event to raise funds for SOURCES’ Homelessness Prevention Services, but also to raise awareness of homelessness in Surrey and White Rock.
I would encourage others to come out and participate. It is a lot of fun, and often not that cold, although it looks like there could be snow this year.” — Leigh Sully, President
