Carleton University’s 5 Days for the Homeless initiative is being hosted by the Sprott Business Students' Society March 11 to 16. All donations will go towards Operation Come Home, a local support center for homeless and at risk youth.​

During the 5-day campaign, 8 Sprott students, along with students from across the country, will be making personal sacrifices for the betterment of their community. These 8 students will forgo their comforts and live outside on campus for five full days no matter what the weather condition.

Sprott students will be living and sleeping outside of the first floor entrance to the University Centre from March 11 at 5 PM to March 16 at 5 PM.

Events are happening each day of the week to raise awareness for the campaign and raise donations to support Operation Come Home.

Tuesday, 11 AM to 3 PM - BBQ by donation
Wednesday, 8 AM to 12 PM - Pancakes by donation
