This annual fundraiser is held each year at the University of Regina in conjunction with the Business Student’s Society at the Paul J. Hill School of Business. 5 participants sleep outside for 5 nights, giving up many luxuries such as cell phones, clean clothing, showers, and regular access to meals, in an effort to open the conversation about the causes of homelessness while raising funds for the day-to-day operations at Carmichael Outreach.
The 2020 Five Days for the Homeless was another roaring success, raising over $42,000, even in spite of having to cancel in-person events as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We can’t begin to say how grateful, and proud, we are of all the students who worked together to make this a success! This year is the 11th anniversary of the 5 Days campaign, and we are very thankful to get to watch teams of devoted students and partners strive towards their fundraising goals, and starting a conversation about poverty and homelessness in our community.
