Memories of February 2022 Coldest Night of the Year

 


Coldest Night of the Year Message from the Coordinator

It’s cold out there and the number of homeless people sleeping on the streets is increasing at an alarming, and ever-increasing rate. I live downtown and it’s now the norm to see people sleeping in doorways, on subway vents, and in tents on the sidewalk. I can’t imagine how that feels. There is one woman I see frequently on Adelaide Street, huddled in a doorway, and inadequately clothed. I sometimes take her coffee and have given her a toque and mittens. I wish I could do more! And we as a group, can…………………

We are well on our way to our initial $1,000 goal with, to date, $550 raised! Small amounts add up quickly and it would be really good if we could reach, or surpass, or goal. We have an outstanding balance of $450 to our goal. Can you each contribute $5, $10, $20 or more? If so that would definitely get us there!

Join us at Ashbridges Bay on February 25th at 2pm. Bring a quilt to wrap yourself in as we walk along the boardwalk – it can be a stroll, a short or a long walk. Regardless we will bring awareness to the community and to The Red Door Shelter. “HERE COME THE QUILTERS”!

If you know members of other Guilds ask them to join us on February 25. Other guilds probably support different charities but perhaps we could persuade them to donate to the RDS, via the YRQG. 

Contact me at my email annemcallister@sympatico.ca and I will send you the link to make a donation.

The Red Door Shelter will be so very thankful for our support!
