Coins For Change raising funds and awareness about homelessness in Greater Trail

The 5th annual Coins For Change Fundraiser and awareness campaign is coming up tonight in Trail.

Career Development Services puts on the event as a fundraiser for their Getting to Home Program to address homelessness in Greater Trail.

Program Coordinator Sheila Adcock says it's a problem that's getting worse.

When it comes to rentals, she says availability is decreasing and rents are increasing putting those in poverty out of the market.

Staff and supporters will sleep under the Victoria Street Bridge on the Esplanade tonight from 8pm until 8am, you can still participate, or drop off a donation tonight, or at the CDS Office.
