The girls really went above and beyond for this clothing drive.

The 3rd Ladysmith Guides collected an amazing 273 cold weather clothing items for the “Coats for Folks” program in Ladysmith. “The girls really went above and beyond for this clothing drive, as they each brought in large bags absolutely stuffed full of winter outerwear,” says leader Seija Laine. In all, the girls collected 85 jackets, four vests, 14 pairs of boots, 50 pairs of gloves, 24 scarves, three pairs of snow pants, and 93 hats. The “Coats for Folks” supply of warm coats, toques, mittens and scarves for children, men and women is running low, and anyone who can contribute is asked to drop off items Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 432 First Ave.
