More than 200 people took part in the annual fundraiser

More than 200 people came out to participate in the 2019 Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) walk in Mission on Saturday (Feb. 23).

The annual walk-a-thon is a fundraiser for the “hungry, homeless and hurting.”

Funds raised go to Mission Youth House and Mission Hope Central. While a final total has not yet been announced, close to $24,000 has been pledged, according to the CNOY website.

About the organizations:

– Mission Youth House is a collaborative initiative to provide a place for youth to eat, shower, do laundry, access medical and other services and receive help from caring adults.

Mission Youth House (MY House) is a warm and friendly environment for our community’s most vulnerable youth to find refuge.

– Mission Hope Central exists to bring hope to individuals facing the day-to-day challenges of poverty. Hope Central has been providing meals and support for vulnerable adults and families for many years and continues to expand its programs for even greater impact.

The primary focus of Hope Central is to build relationships with those in Mission who find themselves struggling with poverty or the feeling of being disenfranchised.
