February not only marks the chilliest time of the year in Toronto but also serves as a reminder of the struggles faced by those experiencing homelessness. In line with this, Street Health proudly welcomed supporters and community members to their 5th annual Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) event, held on Saturday, February 24, from 3-6 PM. 

Each year, the CNOY event evolves with changes and updates reflecting the dynamic nature of the issues at hand with homelessness. Whether returning participants or first-time attendees, everyone is encouraged to invest three hours of their time to delve deeper into the realities of homelessness and witnessing the tangible impact of fundraising efforts.
