LETHBRIDGE, AB – “5 Days for the Homeless” at the University of Lethbridge is going ahead this week after last year’s event had to be cancelled entirely.

Because of current health restrictions though it will still look much different from years past.

Typically, a handful of U of L Management Students would sleep outside for five nights, only eat what is given to them, and still attend their regular classes.

In doing so, they raise money for Woods Homes.

This year, the fundraiser is entirely online.

You can contribute directly through the U of L Students’ Union website, donate bottles and cans at Green’s Pop Shop, or purchase tickets to a charity steak dinner at the Canadian Brewhouse this Thursday.
