As Canadians, we know winter wear is a necessity. But for low-income families or new Canadians, buying all that gear can be tough to afford. And the budget can get particularly stretched if children are involved.
That’s why The Woolcott Team is hosting their 4th annual coat drive on Saturday, November 17th, 2018 from 10 a.m. to noon in support of the Good Shepherd Centre.
Taking place at the Waterdown Shopping Centre (255 Dundas St.E.), the team will be accepting donations of warm coats, hats, mitts and kitchen supplies.
“The Good Shepherd Centre is a fantastic resource for those less fortunate in the community,” says Drew Woolcott, broker of record, Re/Max Escarpment Woolcott Realty Inc. “We have been running this coat drive and each year, our goal is to make it bigger than the last to support as many as people as possible.”
“As a small token of our appreciation for the community’s support, we will have hot chocolate, coffee and snacks on hand,” says Woolcott.
The Good Shepherd Centre has been a cornerstone of the Hamilton community for over 55 years, offering support through its commitment to the mission of “never stop loving” and its willingness to be of service to those in need.
The organization has become the largest provider of human and social services in the Greater Hamilton Area, providing incredible services such as emergency food and clothing, daily hot meals and emergency shelters.
The Woolcott Team is looking forward to seeing the community this coming Saturday.
If you have donations, but aren’t able to make the event, call The Woolcott Team at 905-332-9223 to arrange a pick up!
