What’s happening at NightShift?
In one word: lots! The many events and activities that make up the year at NightShift range from nightly street outreach to crucial fundraisers that support all the work we do at the ministry, from informal orientations (both online and in person Introduction Nights) to formal leadership training (FORGE), participation in community activities and so much more.
Our special events – Gala of Light, and Golf Classic – bring awareness to and help us raise funds for the outreach and education we provide at NightShift and the recovery and counselling offered through The Care Centre.
Seasonal dinners (Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas) are big draws for our street friends and volunteers alike, while our drop-in groups offer a safe place for men and women who are struggling with poverty, homelessness and related issues. Group gatherings include our monthly movie night, weekly Bible Study and Friday Art Classes.
We look forward to bringing back our popular networking opportunities – Builders’ Breakfast Forums – for home builders, renovators and related trades to come together, network, get inspired and explore social corporate responsibility. Other casual gatherings like our Summer BBQ or Christmas Open House are an opportunity for volunteers, donors and friends of NightShift to mingle and enjoy holiday cheer together.
