5 Days for the Homeless: Donate today!
On March 11, students and volunteers, organized by the Commerce and Administration Students Association (CASA) of the John Molson School of Business (JMSB), began sleeping in the streets in support of 5 Days for the Homeless, a nation-wide initiative aimed at raising awareness of the issue of homelessness.
This is the 11th consecutive year that Concordia students have participated in the initiative. Josh Redler, a JMSB alumnus, brought the campaign here in 2007. "Thanks in part to the amazing publicity we received, Montrealers from all walks of life made sure we were fed and cared for with kindness and donations. We raised $42,000 that year."
This year, the national campaign hopes to raise $250,000 to support different community organizations. Concordia's goal is $10,000. Proceeds from the Concordia 5 Days for the Homeless campaign will benefit Dans La Rue, which helps at-risk teens, and Chez Doris, a day shelter for women.
The campaign will run until March 16.
