Coldest Night of the Year 2024
Thank you to our team and supporters

 

For the last couple of months our 2024 Coldest Night of the Year walking team has been getting donations to help out The Mustard Seed and The Red Deer Food Bank.

 

We gathered at The Mustard Seed on Saturday, February 24th to check in and enjoy warm beverages and cookies. There were outside fire pits going to help us stay warm. We did the 2 km walk which lead us on both sides of the river. We had to be careful as there were icy surfaces to cross. When we returned to the building, there was a warm meal of veggie or beef chili (donated by The Soup Sisters soupsisters.org), veggies and jello dessert.

 

Because of how much we raised (so far $3280!) we placed fourth and won a prize of eight passes for Woodshed Ax Throwing in Sylvan Lake! Our team of eight will give it a whirl and we will let you know how it went. Thank you for all the support and prayers. The current total raised for the two providers is $41,002! The Mustard Seed and The Red Deer Food Bank will continue to provide the much needed supports to our ever increasing vulnerable population.
