I’m from the Cold is a Christmas concert that’s been running for 18 years.
To date, the concert has raised over $110,000 for the Youth Emergency Shelter in Peterborough Ontario.
YES provides emergency shelter to youth and families in crisis. We serve roughly 250 new clients every year, in addition to many who have stayed at the shelter before. In addition to emergency housing, we offer support to youth and families through:
- Longer term transitional housing at Abbott House
- Assistance adapting to independent living through the Transitional Life Skills program
- Alternative high school education at The Carriage House (in partnership with PACE and the KPRDSB)
- Vocational, educational and recreation programs (in partnership with other community services)
- Assistance with housing and employment searches
- An emergency food cupboard
The shelter is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
I caught up with a couple of the performers from the concert, John Hoffman and Rob Fortin. The duo offered a stunning sample of the night in my Pathfinder.
Watch the video and listen to how talented these musicians are.
The concert is December 8 & 9 at Market Hall in Peterborough Ontario. Tickets are $20 and available at the box office or online by clicking HERE.
