The Coldest Night of the Year is a fun, family-friendly national walk that helps raise funds for charities that serve people in our community who are hungry, homeless and hurting.

The St-James Drop-in Centre has been hosting the Coldest Night of the Year walk since 2014. We walk in the cold and dark to support all those in our community who are being crushed by struggle, trauma, shame and loneliness. We declare together:“Everybody matters. Everybody belongs. And yes, we need each other.”

The Coldest Night of the Year 2021 will be held on Saturday, February 20th. This year our event will be virtual due to the pandemic. We will be going live at 3:45pm on our Facebook page for the send off. We ask that team members stay in their neighborhoods, and only walk with those who are near, while also respecting the COVID-19 safety guidelines.

We thank you for all your support through this difficult year.  Your solidarity and support has brought us a long way.
