Hairstyling professor Joseph Abbruscato along with a team of NC students braved the temperatures on Feb. 22 for a worthy cause — to participate in the Coldest Night of the Year event in Niagara Falls.
Coldest Night of the Year is a fundraiser that raises money for the hungry, homeless and hurting in 65 communities across Canada.
Abbruscato and his team were among about 150 participants in the Niagara Falls fundraising walk, which was held in support of Project Share.
Created in 1991, Project Share was developed as a non-profit charitable organization in response to an increased demand for emergency services. Project Share provides emergency food and support services to residents of Niagara Falls who are living on or below the poverty line as stipulated by Statistics Canada. The programs are designed to create positive, proactive alternatives in order that people can help themselves and their families in times of crisis.
