5 Days for the Homeless Charity Event

Sun., Mar. 15, 2020 5:00 p.m. - Fri., Mar. 20, 2020 5:00 p.m.

Location: Nationwide

The Hill Business Students Society will be participating in the “5 Days for the Homeless” campaign for the eleventh year. 5 Days for the Homeless is a national campaign that takes place across Canadian universities over a five day and night period. The campaign begins at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 15th and concludes at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 20th. Five University of Regina students will spend five days and nights experiencing temporary homelessness. During this week, participants forgo the use of common necessities such as showering, basic grooming and shelter. The food that is consumed by the participants must be donated to them by the public.

The mission of the 5 Days for the Homeless campaign is to raise awareness about homelessness in Regina and collect monetary donations for Carmichael Outreach. In 2019, the group raised $58,604, which was the highest 5 Days total of all participating universities (ever)!
