Oak Bay United honoured by Mustard Seed

Church earns accolades for support of Coldest Night of the Year walk

Oak Bay United Church earned honours Sunday, June 19, for its fundraising efforts for the Mustard Seed.

Kelcy Snyckers, the Mustard Seed’s marketing and event co-ordinator, stopped by the church Sunday to thank “Team Oak Bay United” members for their support of the Coldest Night of the Year walk to combat homelessness.

Coldest Night of the Year is a national walk-a-thon, held in cities across Canada, which partners with local community organizations that support people who experience homelessness.

This year’s walk in Victoria, along with direct donations to the Mustard Seed’s street church, brought in $32,000 for the organization, $12,000 more than the previous year.
