Virtual CNOY Day

This is your own self-organized micro-walk! Virtual CNOY Day should feel pretty familiar once you get walking - here are some key things you'll need to do on February 20 (or whatever day in February you decide to walk):

  • Gather with your covid-safe bubble (or on your own)
  • Map out a safe 2-5 km route
  • Let someone know where you are
  • Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
  • Share online as you go! #cnoy21 #opendoors
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • Be safe and have fun!

About Open Doors

At Open Doors we offer over a dozen free social support programs for the community. COVID has put a halt to this and we have had to adjust all of our programming. We ourselves are a food-centric organization that has a food bank, community garden and take-out home meal program. We also partner in our area with other like minded organizations to offer support in parenting, mental health and wellness and skills development so that the community has access to numerous resources in one visit. These efforts have shifted to online remote interaction during the pandemic. We have a very small staff and rely heavily on volunteer's time and talents to make things run smoothly. We strive to be an inclusive and welcoming space for all people, and work hard at making community connection throughout all areas. Join us on the Coldest Night of the Year to raise much needed awareness and funds that will allow us to continue to support those in our community, now more than ever!!
