Each year a national initiative called Coats for Kids collects warm winter wear for kids who can’t afford new coats of their own. Here in Kimberley, coats are collected by realtors at Royal LePage East Kootenay Realty and sent to the Food Bank for distribution to needy children.
This year the program is getting off to a bit of a slow start says realtor Marilyn Jolie.
“Toys and Togs have been amazing, as they always are,” Jolie said. “But we are not getting many from the public.”
If you have any children’s winter wear in reasonable wear, please drop it at East Kootenay Realty in Kimberley. Jolie will take care of getting it to the Food Bank.
