Seneca students brave the cold for homelessness
Feb. 25, 2021
When Kelly Frapporti-Tobin recently camped out in a tent in her backyard for two days, the sun was shining and her dog was playfully enjoying the adventure.
“But at 5 p.m., the sun goes down and the temperature drops considerably,” said the Honours Bachelor of Crime & Intelligence Analysis student. “It’s an awful feeling. It’s exhausting. You don’t sleep well when it’s -20 C.”
In an effort to help those who brave those conditions daily while living on the street, Ms. Frapporti-Tobin, a Hamilton native and private investigator, spent two nights sleeping outside to increase awareness about homelessness and raise more than $7,500 for the Men’s Street Ministry in Hamilton and Brantford.
