Realtors and staff from Sutton Realty in Vernon will again be collecting warm winter wear during its third annual Warm and Fuzzy Shelter Collection on Nov. 13.

Realtors get Warm & Fuzzy

Sutton is gearing up for its third annual Warm & Fuzzy Shelter Collection, where warm weather outer wear is utilized by Gateway Shelter

There is, once again, a warm and fuzzy feeling at a Vernon real estate office.

Sutton is gearing up for its third annual Warm & Fuzzy Shelter Collection, where warm weather outer wear is utilized by Gateway Shelter, Howard House, Woman’s Transition House and spread throughout the community to meet the need of keeping citizens warm and secure.

“Our crew delivers to Howard House and the agencies meet there to take away what they need for those that rely on them,” said Sutton realtor Beth Marks.

On Wednesday, Nov. 13, all of Sutton Vernon’s realtors and staff will be out in its parking lot from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for a drive-through collection.

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

Organizers will be collecting winter coats, hats, scarves, mittens and gloves, winter boots, blankets and towels. (Please do not include other clothing unless it is geared for winter outdoor wear).

This year, Sutton will also accept cash donations to take along with the clothing and make sure you receive a tax receipt for any amount over $20.

During the week of Nov. 6-13 during business hours, items can be dropped at Sutton’s office at 2749-30th Street (across from Journey Inn).

The phone number is 250-549-3944 if you have any questions.
