5 Days for the Homeless is recruiting volunteers for the 5 Days week from Monday, March 12th to Friday, March 16th. Basic duties would include collecting donations and spreading awareness of our campaign
General Information about 5 Days & RaY:
On March 12th to 16th, six University of Manitoba students will forgo the comforts of their homes to live outside on the University of Manitoba campus for five nights. They are joining 26 Canadian universities for the national 5 Days for the Homeless campaign, which aims to raise awareness and funds for youth homelessness.
All proceeds from the University of Manitoba campaign go directly Resource Assistance for Youth, RaY. RaY is a non-profit street-level agency working with street-entrenched and homeless youth up to the age of 29. RaY is non-judgmental and non-partisan, employing a harm reduction approach to all interactions with youth in need.
An example of how RaY helps homeless youth is working with them to get a SIN number. Homeless youth are unable to get SIN numbers because they don't have an address, therefore not allowing them to get a job. RaY will provide the resources they need to get them a SIN number, which will then provide them with the opportunity to get a job.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Brett or Kyle, our volunteer coordinatiors.
