Sub Zero Clothing Drive

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

With the cold weather comes growing concerns for the safety and well-being of those who must spend the night (or even the daytime) on the streets.

Aside from campaigns like Sox in the City, Kate from ChangeEverything is taking initiative again this year by doing a Sub Zero Clothing Drive.

A couple of years ago when Vancouver had a cold snap, we as a community used ChangeEverything to organize ourselves to do a clothing drive. The results were significant. In 48 hours we had collected over 4000 items of warmth for local shelters. Given that temperatures are so low (and plummeting more this week) I thought it was a perfect time to awaken the “Got Hats?” concept. [Change Everything]

To donate simply take stock in your house – find jackets, blankets, housecoats, and anything that can be used to keep someone warm. Gather up the items you would like to donate, add a comment to the official blog post on ChangeEverything, then wait for Kate to contact you and she’ll come to collect.

    Good post – it’s important that we don’t forget those less fortunate during the holiday season, and the onset of the frigid winter temperatures

    thanks for the shout out.
    I am about to hit the streets this afternoon with a Delica full of collected items!

    Interested folks should chime in on ChangeEverything to get their donations deployed to shelters.
