Again this year, the Coats for Kids Program was successful in reaching those in need of warm winter coats and accessories.
From mid-November to mid-December, we distributed 196 coats and 176 hats, mitts and scarves through the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association.
A huge thank you to our “Knitters” (you know who you are) who were especially busy this year, the Ladysmith Health Care Auxiliary for their kind donations every week of kid-sized coats, and the entire community for their generosity in donating to this worthwhile program.
A special thank you also to Bridges Church, which went the extra distance this year to purchase eight brand-new teenager-sized jackets.
What an amazing community!
