Cool Aid’s Winter Coat Giveaway at Downtown Community Centre Jan 10 #yyj @Viccoolaid
The chill of winter can be felt by all of us in Victoria, and it is especially chilly for those struggling with homelessness. To help people stay warm the Victoria Cool Aid Society’s Casual Labour Pool has been accepting donations of winter coats and other cold weather gear.
On Thursday, Cool Aid staff will start spreading that warmth by giving away over 300 winter coats of all sizes for men, women and children.
The giveaway is open to anyone in need of warm clothing and will be held at the Downtown Community Centre, 755 Pandora Avenue, Thursday, January 10, from 1 to 2:30 pm.
Clothing donations are needed throughout the year and anyone wishing to make a donation after January 10, can contact Cool Aid at 250-414-4799 or visit www.CoolAid.org/goods to find out more.
