An organization that helps house and support men over 18 in Whitecourt is hoping to expand its services.

Lornes Blanket men’s transitional housing will be holding a fundraiser for their In From The Cold mat program to help support the initiative.

Their “Homeless for 24” fundraiser is from 1 pm December 8 to 1 pm December 9 at the Family Worship Centre.

Volunteers will be staying out in the parking lot for 24 hours to raise awareness about homelessness.

The mat program gives men a place to sleep for a night, including a shower and meal.

Participants can join the event, sponsor someone in the event, or donate items.
