Don a toque, donate, show you care

It’s cold out there and Nelson CARES wants to help warm things up for people who need it most. Nelson CARES is hosting the 5th Annual Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser. The event will take place on Saturday, February 23 on the streets of Nelson.

For the month of February you will see our 2019 toques popping up all over town. Every day in February a different business will be wearing our toques and putting them in their window displays as well as hosting donation bins for Coldest Night of the Year – Nelson CARES. Each day will be promoted on our social media accounts. (Coldest Night of the Year: Nelson, BC and Coldest_Night_Nelson of Instagram).

Please pop into those businesses and make a donation and let those business owners know that you appreciate their participation. I know we do. Valhalla Pure Outfitters in Nelson is our lead sponsor this year. They are a great store with a big heart. 

Nelson CARES would like to invite everyone to join us for this fun family-friendly event. There is still lots of time to sign up to volunteer, walk or as a sponsor. Head to and lets get walkin’.
