Indigenous students were working on this event over a month and they held it despite the cold weather outside.

Indigenous students studying at Manitoba University came to the corner of Main Street and Dufferin Avenue and gave all necessary winter clothes, accessories and food to most vulnerable city inhabitants.

Amanda Fredlund, one of the students who were there on November 18, admitted that it was really pleasant for her to help people in need and not to wait for something in return. It is getting colder and colder outside, and if these poor people do not receive help, many of them will not be able to survive the winter.

This campaign has been going on for the third year in a row, and thanks to it, many homeless people have received winter jackets, mittens, and other necessary warm clothing items.

According to official data, more than 60% of the homeless population of the city is Indigenous. So, young people of Indigenous origin consider it their duty to help those who need it and who are less fortunate in life.
