Each year the Kinsmen Club of Brockville, in partnership with Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville, collects and distributes snowsuits to folks in need. Starting Nov 7 through to Dec 5, the community can donate their snowsuits in new and good condition at one of the drop off locations on the poster.
Each year, through the generosity of supportive community residents, the program gives away over 500 snowsuits to folks in need.
Please make sure that donated snow suits are in a plastic bag (to protect them) before dropping them in the collection box. Gloves, scarves, mittens, hats, toques, boots, and similar items that are in good condition are also accepted. Severson Cleaners will be cleaning donated apparel.
Monetary donations are also appreciated and used to purchase hard to get sizes and in some cases to make repairs.
Cheques should be made payable to the Brockville Kinsmen Snowsuit Drive and mailed to the Club at PO Box 24, Brockville ON K6V 5T7, or email us to arrange pick-up.
Families in need of snow suits can pick one up at the Pier Church at 806 Chelsea Court (see map), on one of the three distribution dates: Saturday, November 21, 28, or December 5.
