Since the fall of 1996, we have collected clothing for needy children and orphans in the countries of Eastern Europe.
Throughout November the collection barrel can be filled with new running shoes, socks, mitts, toques and underwear for children.
Last year we collected nearly 10,000 new socks and toques along with 4,000 other items that included boys’ and girls’ underwear, scarves, blankets and mitts.
Sorting, counting and packaging for shipping to Eastern Europe will take place on Dec 6 at Park Drive Church, Oliver; all are welcome.
Collection barrels are available to be placed from Nov. 2 to Nov. 30 2014.
PLEASE DONATE KNITTED & NEW CHILDREN’S SHOES, SOCKS,
MITTS, TOQUES, SCARVES, BLANKETS AND UNDERWEAR
