Feb. 22 will be the coldest night of the year for a team of councillors and staff from the Municipality of Kings when they hit the streets to raise money for a local emergency shelter.
Participants will join thousands of Canadians who will bundle up for a 5-or-10-kilometre walk for the Coldest Night of the Year event. All of the money raised for the Annapolis Valley walk will support Open Arms, a Kentville-based organization that serves people living with poverty.
“We hope that other municipal units in Kings County will also support this great event,” says Warden Diana Brothers. “We are putting out a challenge to see which municipal team can raise the most money for Open Arms and help meet the immediate needs of those living in Kings County who find themselves homeless, hungry or alone.”
More information about the County’s team, including a list of participants and ways to sponsor, can be found on the Municipality of Kings Recreation Services Facebook page.
