Coldest Night of the Year Cloverdale

It’s cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is on Saturday, February 23rd and the Katronis Real Estate Team is doing something about it. Together with thousands of Canadians across the country, we’re walking and fundraising to support and serve hungry, homeless, and hurting people and families in our community, as well as 136 additional communities across Canada. Our team supports groups and initiatives in our community, not only as a major sponsor of Cloverdale’s Coldest Night of the Year walk for the past three years but as members of the community actively working towards helping all community members to thrive. Visit our Katronis Cares team page here.

About the cause

The Coldest Night of the Year is a moment when tens of thousands of Canadians step outside the warmth and comfort of their homes and walk in unison to shine a light of welcome and inclusion to those who are less fortunate.
Together, they collect donations that fund critical services at their respective local charity partners, who serve and support vulnerable families and individuals in their Coldest Night of the Year community.

Together, we will walk….

…. through the cold and dark on February 23, to declare our concern for people who have no home, and take shelter in nooks and crannies.

Together, we will walk….

for those whose days are a battle to house and feed their families, and whose nights are filled with fear and frustration.

Together, we will walk….

for those driven from home by violence and abuse. And we walk for people overwhelmed by isolation, guilt, and despair.

Together, we will walk….

humbly, realizing that anyone can lose their footing and then lose everything else.
Each step we take brings someone closer to safety, health, and home, as together, we raise funds for organizations whose commitment and work transforms peoples’ lives.
