It’s cold out there and Nelson CARES wants to help warm things up for people who need it most.

Nelson CARES is hosting the fifth annual Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser. The event will take place on Saturday, February 23rd 2019 on the streets of Nelson.

For the first three years, proceeds from the Coldest Night of the Year went to renovate Ward Street Place.

Last year and again this year, proceeds will be going toward our ‘Ready for Home’ program. This program assists Nelson CARES tenants coming out of homelessness with life skills; connection to health, employment and income supports … anything that will help these residents stay in the affordable housing units and off the streets.

Coldest Night of the Year is a national event that sees people all across the country head out onto the street in late February to show their support for those people that have little choice but to be on the streets. Nelson CARES would like to invite everyone to join us for this fun family friendly event.

We are looking for volunteers, team captains, walkers, and donors.
