In just over a month, the Revelstoke Women’s Shelter rocketed past their Coldest Night of the Year fundraising goal.
As of Feb. 11, the organization had raised almost $24,000 out of their aim of $20,000.
The Coldest Night of the Year is a fundraiser where teams walk for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt and hunger.
The walk is Feb. 20. People are invited to participate virtually by walking two or five kilometres and posting photos on Facebook.
While the women’s shelter gets funding from BC Housing, executive director Lynn Loeppky said the money does not cover their new art program, yoga therapy and free counselling services.
The more money raised from this fundraiser, the more the women’s shelter can expand and help Revelstokians.
“All this money goes back into the community,” Loeppky said.
