Sleeping in the cold for charity

This week University of Lethbridge students gave up the comforts of home for a good cause. The students participated in a charity event that is raising money for a local youth shelter. I spent some time with them at their new home, outside of the student union building.

These students gave up shelter from the wind to provide shelter for the homeless.

This week these students lived outside and collected donations for the 5 Days for the Homeless fundraiser.

They raised money for a local youth shelter, Woods Homes.
