Sigma Chi Fraternity’s Annual Fundraiser for The Ottawa Mission

Members of Lambda Theta chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity at the University of Ottawa held the annual “Homeless for the Homeless” event in support of The Ottawa Mission in February 2015.

Students braved the cold winter weather and set up a tent on the university campus to find out what it’s like to sleep outdoors in the winter. They took turns sleeping outside for 72 hours straight.

The event raised just over $4100 this year, bringing the event’s four year total to more than $17,000 towards helping people in need!
