CommunityThe Coldest Night of the Year 2023

February 15, 2023

We love taking part of The Coldest Night of the Year. The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Join us on February 25, 2023 – team up, fundraise, walk, and gather for good… because it’s cold out there.

What started as a donation jar for CNOY on Saturday night (Feb 11)  turned into a full-on fundraising auction, starting with a banana. You read that right. While telling our crowd about CNOY we set up a spur-of-the-moment auction and sold off our manager’s banana for $500! We followed up with some other Rural Roots goodies such as a 30L keg, a 6 pack, and a bottle of moonshine which brought us to a total of $1400 raised. We thank our patrons for participating!

This money goes to Woolwich Community Services.

Woolwich Community Services (WCS) has been the helping hand, supportive friend, and the community service provider to thousands of Woolwich and northern Wellesley Township residents since 1974.

We are the feet on the street, a resource helping where help is needed and a referral service to other community support providers. Since the completion of our new building in 2014, we have been able to enhance our existing programs and welcome many outside service providers to our location. Together we are making a difference to help enhance our community.

WCS Focuses on three key areas of the community:

-Individual and Family Services

-Children and Youth

-Programs for all

We are known for providing programs like the Food Hamper program and the Family Violence Prevention program but we offer much more.

Come and join WCS on the Coldest Night of the Year walk and help raise money for programs offered in YOUR community.
