Even though it wasn’t the coldest night of the year, hundreds of people still took to streets in support of the Truro Homeless Outreach Society.

For the third year, the society played host to the Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser on February 25. Thanks to 54 teams and close to 400 walkers, it has generated more than $79,000 for the non-profit organization, which is on the verge of starting construction on a brand new shelter this spring.
