The United Way of Northern BC is working in partnership with The Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society to collect clothing and food donations and distribute them to vulnerable residents.

As winter approaches, the United Way is putting the focus on warm clothing donations for residents of Fort St. John why may need them.

“We have a lot of people who are at high risk during the winter, and of course are provided with warm items — and that can either be the homeless, or low-income families, or families with children who can’t quite afford those extras,” said Niki Hedges with the United Way.

“It’s meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in the winter months.”

Hedges added that food items are always welcome — as non-perishable foods top the list as far as demand goes. She also extends the invitation to other businesses to join in and start their own clothing drive for those in need.

Donations are being collected at the Women’s Resource Society’s Poverty Outreach Store.
