Charles Burrell and Lisa Ryan spent the winter making sure no one in Moncton froze to death in a snowbank or overdosed in a tent.

Burrell and his group of volunteers provided cots for about 50 people every night in the converted dining hall at the Humanity Project, a non-profit organization on St. George Street in Moncton that feeds people every day.

Ryan, who runs the YMCA’s ReConnect street outreach program, accommodated another 50 people at a temporary shelter in downtown Moncton.
