With more than nine million Canadians living with diabetes or pre-diabetes, chances are, most Canadians know someone living with the disease.

From coast to coast this November, Diabetes Awareness Month is being marked with local events and Clothing Drive activities.

The Clothesline Okanagan team has launched the fourth annual Fill the Bagster clothing drive at Vernon’s Rona store, which kicks off Saturday, Nov. 14 and is underway until Nov. 20.

“Donors are encouraged to bring donations of gently-used clothing, jackets, shoes, linens, household items and small appliances,” said Ed Laverock with the Canadian Diabetes Association. “Awareness and funds will support the vital work of the Canadian Diabetes Association.”
