To the editor,

I am thrilled to see that the Out of the Cold program in Truro will once again be operating seven nights a week.

I am thrilled to see that the Out of the Cold program in Truro will once again be operating seven nights a week.

There have been many people that have volunteered over the last five years to make this happen. I want to take the opportunity to recognize and thank the new volunteers from Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC).

This past spring a few of us from Immanuel Baptist Church met with faculty members Daniel Chris and Ed Wohlmuth to see if there would be interest incorporating the Human Services course with Out of the Cold.

They were excited to put the challenge of their in-class training to a real world problem that exists right in our back yards. We were also invited to speak to the students, and now many have signed up to volunteer this year. Out of the Cold is back up and running and because of these students, along with many other community volunteers to make it a seven night a week program once again.

The students have also decided to hold a number of college fundraisers to help fund Out of the Cold. Angela Castle is spearheading this NSCC initiative, including a recent bake sale and an upcoming music night. These talented students will not only be raising much-needed funds but much-needed winter garments. I really appreciate these young adults.
