President and CEO of the Yonge Street Mission Angela Draskovic visited The Five ahead of Saturday’s “Coldest Night of the Year” fundraiser. The mission serves as a safe haven for street-involved youth, offering emergency help, mentoring and other services to those in need.
CityNews’ Stella Acquisto will be on hand for the event. Participants can choose between a five or 10 kilometre walk and raise funds through sponsorships. As of Friday the mission had collected about 76 per cent of their goal of about $160,000.
