After taking 2021 off, the Taber Food Bank is hosting the Coldest Night of the Year event for its fourth year come Feb. 26. The event, as described at cnoy.org, ‘is a terrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness.’ The goal being to fundraise money for a local charity to help support an initiative they’ve set a goal for.
Matilda Van Huizen, coordinator for Coldest Night of the Year in Taber, stated it isn’t something a charity applies for, they are contacted.
“At the time of the first event (in 2018), I was serving on the board as a treasurer, so they referred them to me and asked if we would be interested in hosting the event, to which I replied I’d need to talk to the board. They gave us a timeline of when we needed to apply and then that was it from there.”
