LETTERS: Support for CNOY a pleasant surprise

Editor:

This year, I was pleasantly surprised by the huge amount of community support during the Coldest Night of the Year.

Many promenade walkers joined and that was a surprise as well. This just demonstrates the generosity of our community and how people will chip in a few bucks and have a fun few hours walking.

Also, a big shout out to all the kids who spent a few hours walking to support homelessness prevention instead of playing Fortnite at home.

Another big shout out to the Peace Arch News, who covered me and the event, raising awareness about this issue and encouraging people to donate.

I am extremely excited about next year’s event and I hope that anyone who is reading this will join the CNOY next year. However, if you are still hoping to donate this year, the window is open until March 31 (cnoy.org and choose the White Rock location). Thank you very much and hope to see you next year.

Please donate to our awesome school team semitrail.

Rocco Forte, 11
