Learning centre holds winter coat drive
The Orillia Learning Centre is beginning their seventh annual winter coat drive, which donates coats to families to help them stay warm through the winter. The coat drive is run in partnership with Fabricare Cleaning Center of Orillia. Donations of gently used coats can be dropped off from Oct. 17 to Nov. 30 during regular business hours at the following locations:
Learning Centre, Orillia Campus - 575 West St. S., Unit 15, Orillia
Fabricare Cleaning - 36 Front St. S., Orillia
Wihlidal Family Chiropractic - 349 West St. N., Orillia
Fabricare will clean the coats prior to distribution. Coats are needed in all sizes (infant, child, teen and adult), but especially small children and large men's. Please note that fur or leather coats cannot be accepted because of specialized cleaning requirements.
Coat donors are also asked (if possible) to donate a non-perishable food item at the Orillia Learning Centre location. Food donations will be distributed through Christmas food hampers for students.
