Cold Walk to Fund Warm Beds and Hot Meals
Huntsville, ON – With the goal of helping the hungry, hurting and homeless, six representatives of Sutton Group – Muskoka Realty Inc.*, including Broker Sharon Busse, walked in the Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser. Through personal donations and a Facebook campaign, they raised awareness of the issues and $1,185 for the Table Soup Kitchen. This local, non-profit, non-denominational, Christian organization operates a soup kitchen, food bank and men’s shelter.
“The Table Soup Kitchen is committed to lovingly serving people who are in need in the Muskoka area,” says Sharon. “All of the funds raised in the Huntsville event will stay in our community. Sutton Group - Muskoka Realty Inc.* was proud to help raise over $1,100 on February 22, 2020, through the Coldest Night of the Year walk.”
In 2018, the Table Soup Kitchen served 4,459 meals. This organization provides a vital service for low-income individuals in the Huntsville area. For more information, please visit https://thetablefoundation.ca.
“We joined in the Coldest Night of the Year to raise awareness of the fact that many people lack a warm place to reside and a hot meal on the table. For our fundraising walk, we chose the 5-kilometre route through the Town of Huntsville.”
Considering that the event took place in mid-February—a time of year when Canadians can expect wild winter weather—they were fortunate. Sharon reports, “The sidewalks were a bit icy, but it really wasn't the coldest night. We had a lot of fun for a great cause and we have already marked our calendars for next year!”
The latest, national tally for the Coldest Night of the Year 2020 is $5,940,531.
