Toque Pick-Up Times

It's Toque Time! We've done our best to provide a toque for everyone who is walking. We know each and every walker is going all out to reach and exceed their goals!


  • Saturday February 20, 10 am to 5 pm, outside of Wuerth's Shoes, 142 Courthouse Square, Goderich
  • Packages will be on a table outside the store with the names of team captains on them.
  • Team captains are asked to please pick up the toque package for their team and distribute safely.
  • Packages for qualifying walkers not on a team will be in the same location.
  • With much appreciation to Wuerth's Shoes for their support!

If your team has grown since early Friday, February 19, or you have any other toque needs or questions, email cstinson@perthhuron.unitedway.ca and we'll do our best to help in a timely manner.

Virtual CNOY Day

This is your own self-organized walk! 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
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • Be safe and have fun!

About Goderich Homelessness and UNF Initiative

The Goderich and Area Community Committee of United Way Perth-Huron invites you to walk with us to help the homeless, the hungry and the hurting in Goderich and area.


Walk anytime February 20 to 28, 2021 on a 2km or 5km route of your choice.


Walk to support the Homelessness Initiative in Goderich. Homelessness isn’t just about sleeping on the streets and 80% is hidden or unreported. It affects almost every aspect of life including family well-being, employment and physical and mental health.


Walk to support the Urgent Needs Fund that supports local residents in a time of crisis with funds for essentials like rent, groceries and medication.


Walk to support programs like the Huron supportive housing worker, shelter for women, children and youth, and long term change to supportive housing.
