The gift of giving a jacket this winter could make the cold holiday season feel a whole lot warmer for some.
Family Dynamix will be accepting gently used coats between November 16th and December 3rd for the Coats for Families Campaign.
It is wonderful to see Columbia Valley residents and Family Dynamix staff embrace the need of coats for people in our community, said Meagan Fazackerley, Columbia Valley Early Years co-ordinator at Family Dynamix. It is not only jackets and coats being collected this year, Family Dynamix is also accepting, gloves, hats, toques and boots.
The coats and other items that are collected will be distributed to needy families between Monday to Thursday during 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (closed between noon and 1 p.m. for lunch) weekly at the Family Dynamix office this winter.
The giving of these items is done with respect and in a confidential manner, Ms. Fazackerley said.
For more information, call Ms. Fazackerley at 250-342-5566 or drop by Family Dynamix at 1317-7th Ave in Invermere.
