The 6th annual week of sleeping outside in support of Phoenix Youth Programs has come to end, but we still encourage you to join the Dalhousie Commerce Society in supporting and fundraising for youth in need through our 5 Days Campaign
The DCS' 5 Days Campaign will remain open throughout the month of April. All cash, food, and clothing donations are still greatly appreciated and accepted in person in the DCS office or online through the link below
5 Days is a national campaign run by the Canadian Association of Business Students that strives to raise awareness and donations for members of society that are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
All is done with the goal of sensitizing and educating the public on one of the major problems in this country. Donations raised are given to local shelters and programs to support their services within the community.
The Dalhousie Commerce Society will be partnering with Phoenix Youth Programs in Halifax for the sixth year in a row! This year, 5 Days will be on Dalhousie's campus from March 24-29, 2019.
Interested in Partnership?
As student participation with our 5 Days campaign continues to grow year over year, our fundraising goal continues to grow as well. If you would like to get involved with 5 Days from a partnership level, please take a look through our package attached below, and reach out to Julia, VP External, if you have any specific questions.
At Phoenix, we believe that people matter. All people. We all have the right to respect, dignity, support, and the opportunity to thrive.
Since 1987, Phoenix has been dedicated to supporting youth and contributing to a vibrant community. Phoenix’s ten locations in Halifax, NS provide a continuum of care for youth ages 11-24 and their families. We offer important services and programs including shelter, food, housing support, health care, parenting support, recreation, education and employment services, and clinical therapy.
Our team of caring professionals recognize that each person who comes to us has individual needs as well as strengths. People are the leaders in their own lives; Phoenix is a leader in supporting them.
