Winter Clothing Drive

The Winter Clothing Drive kicks off on Monday (October 25th)

As temperatures drop and winter approaches, coats and warm clothing become a necessity. Many community members rely on donated items to help them keep warm and this year, United Way KFL&A is hoping the community can help once again.

Workplaces and community members are asked to donate clean, new or gently used coats and boots (coats must be washable only; no leather or heavy wool) and new accessories including new hatsmittsscarves and socks. Items can be dropped off to collection bins throughout KFL&A from October 25 – November 5.

For more information about this year’s Winter Clothing Drive visit www.unitedwaykfla.ca/winterclothingdrive
