The “Coldest Night of the Year”, a nationwide fundraiser for local organizations that assist homeless people, is coming to South Grenville.

The event will involve people who sign up and collect donations walking either a two- or five-kilometer route through Brockville on the evening of February 26th.

The donations from the event are going towards Connect Youth, a Prescott-based charity that benefits at-risk youth in the community. United Way of Leeds and Grenville is working alongside Connect Youth to help host the event.

If you’re interested in donating, or signing up to participate, visit the Coldest Night of the Year website.
