Warm clothing drive continues this month
Date Posted: January 8, 2015
Many people are not quite as fortunate as the rest of us and have to face the cold reality of spending their days and nights in the cold. A lot of individuals succumb to illnesses or injuries caused or worsened by the rigors and dangers of living outdoors, as well as exposure to weather in Alberta’s harsh winter environment.
With this in mind the RDCPSYC Society has chosen to try and make a difference this winter by setting up a warm clothes drive. The initial response in December was incredible and we are continuing every day throughout January.
If you’d like to offer assistance by donating warm winter clothing, we are collecting clean, gently-used coats, jackets, heavy sweatshirts, hoodies, sweaters, toques, gloves, scarves, new socks. Socks are indispensable to people on their feet all day looking for shelter, housing, employment, health care, and food.
A little goes a long way so when you see the box covered in Christmas wrap around campus, please feel free to engage and donate. The dates and locations are:
- January 5-9 Exam Schedule bulletin board
- January 12-16 Table 15
- January 19-23 Table 1
- January 26-30 SA Stairs
Thank you for all who have donated and helped spread the word!
