Cendy Knight receives a helping hand from Al Eves as she sets up shelter for the night at the Haven for Homeless Men’s second annual Boxes and Blankets fundraising event held at The Commons outside the Downtown Chatham Centre on Oct. 21. Participants put themselves in the shoes of the homeless for one night, in hopes of raising awareness while the winter season approaches. The New Beginnings House’s A Point of Hope run a program three days a week, providing assistance to those who step through the door at 183 Wellington St. W.. Those wishing to make a donation or get involved as a volunteer are welcome to stop by location’s office, or call 519-351-4010 for more information.
