What does the typical 20 year old do for their birthday? Hang with good friends...grab something to eat...walk out in the freezing cold? Emily Cotter plans on doing all of these by participating in the Coldest Night of the Year on February 23rd, her birthday!
“I guess this year I decided that instead of wasting money celebrating my birthday on silly things like dinner or going out to bars like the average 20 year old, I really wanted to take this opportunity to make a difference,” wrote Emily.
THANK YOU Waterloo Region for the overwhelming support for our very first Christmas Campaign!

Q - "Could you clarify the 16,800 holiday meals number?
WOW...we would like to THANK everyone for the overwhelming response to our very first Christmas Campaign! We are very excited and humbled at the same time by how the Cambridge, Kitchener & Waterloo communities are generously giving to care for those in need.
