Coldest Night of the Year Walk Saturday in Nelson

The Restoration of Ward Street Place is on schedule to be complete by the end of the year...but they still need to raise some funds to do the work.

It's part of the Nelson Cares Society Room to Live initiative, and this Saturday, it's the Coldest Night of the Year Fundraiser in the community.

Event Coordinator Lisa McGeady says housing in general is a huge issue in the community.

 Ward Street Place is one of the last few blocks of affordable housing in the community, and McGeady says it's important they maintain the building.
