Realtors collect warm clothing

The winter chill is starting to settle on the North Okanagan and a local business wants to ensure everyone stays warm.

Sutton Group-Lakefront Realty is gearing up for its second annual Warm and Fuzzy Shelter Collection Nov. 5 to 9.

“Last year, we were able to collect half a cube van loaded with coats, blankets, mittens, hats, scarves and long johns for adults and children,” said Beth Marks, with Sutton.

“We delivered these items to Howard House and the Gateway Shelter for distribution in the impending cold weather.”

From Nov. 5 to 9,  from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. residents can drop off donations of warm clothing at the  Sutton office at 2749 30th St. (across from Journey Inn).

On Nov. 8, Sutton’s realtors and staff will be the parking lot from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for a drive-thru collection.

“You don’t even have to leave your car. We’ll grab your donations and load them into a waiting van,” said Marks.

“Please comb through your closets and help Sutton help our great community.”
