Keep Yeg Warm 2018
10988 124 St, Edmonton, AB T5M 0H8, Canada
Yeg Music is proud to present for the second time around!
"Keep Yeg Warm" a winter coat drive for The Bissell Centre! We all know how freezing cold it can get in Edmonton and having the proper winter wear is so important to ensure the health and safety of our most vulnerable groups.
"The struggle for survival is often most pressing during the winter months when temperatures in Canadian cities can plunge to -30 degree celsius and below. Environment Canada warns that at temperatures with a wind chill of -29 to -39 degree celsius, exposed skin can freeze in 10-30 minutes with subsequent hypothermia and frostbite.
Across Canada in 2011, there were 95 deaths from exposure, with these deaths occuring twice as often in men than women. While the number of deaths from exposure are small, many advocates ask why these deaths, as well as exposure-related injuries or illnesses, are still happening at all."
