“COINS FOR CHANGE”
DEAR FRIENDS IN THE COMMUNITY:
Please join CDS in spending a night under the Victoria Street Bridge in downtown Trail on September 12, 2014 from 8:00pm until 8:00am….yes you heard us right!
We are going to be spending the night under the Victoria Street Bridge in downtown Trail as a fundraiser to help raise money and bring awareness for the Getting to Home: Addressing Homelessness in Greater Trail Program. All of the proceeds raised will go towards sustaining this program.
The Getting to Home: Homlessness program has helped over 163 people to date with both housing and other much needed supports. This program has been in existence since 2012 and has helped more than half of the individuals supported in the program to find sustainable housing. But the program does so much more than simply find individuals or families housing, our facilitator helps to wrap the much needed supports these people need to ensure they are able to live healthy productive lives as well as, maintain their housing.
The event will begin at the Victoria Street Bridge in Trail at 8:00pm and will end at 8:00am Saturday morning, for a total of 12hrs. We are asking individuals and/or teams to pick up a pledge form from CDS and start earning pledges. There is a minimum pledge of $2.00 per hour, so for a minimum $24.00 you can help raise funds in the name of homelessness. It is mere coins for the change we are looking for, simply to eradicate homelessness in the Greater Trail area.
If you do not want to sleep under the bridge with us on September 12, but still want to make a donation, feel free to drop off your monetary donation, of any amount, either on the day of the event or any time at the CDS. The CDS office is located at 1565 Bay Avenue in Trail, we will be happy to accept your donations any time! Cheques can be made payable to Career Development Services or CDS. Alternatively you can send your donation to us online, see attached sheet for more information.
If you have any questions about this event call Sheila Adcock at CDS at 250-364-1104.
