Warmth Project donations filling community need

WhatsOn Dec 16, 2014 Hamilton Mountain News

Donations to the Warmth Project are pouring in as thoughtful individuals drop off new winter outerwear in specially marked bins located across the Mountain.

Dozens of mittens, gloves, hats, scarfs and coats have been donated in the first month of the clothing drive organized by the Mountain News. There have also been donations of hand-knitted toques and sweaters.

The donations are being distributed by Mountain Kidz Klub and Peoples Church.

For one young girl, the kindness of a stranger has resulted in her getting her a brand new coat and snow pants for the first time.

“She was so happy,” said Kathy Archer of Mountain Kidz Klub.
